In light of ongoing developments resulting from the announcement of an active COVID 19 (New Corona Virus) case in the country, and the directive from the Ministry of Health that among other things, a ban on public gatherings and major public events, we have changed most our events to virtual, during this period. Stay up to date and sign-up for these events here.
All our spaces are implementing Ministry of Health guidelines and we are encouraging our staff and members to continue practising safety precautions when away from the office. As the COVID-19 crisis is developing, we at Nairobi Garage are actively thinking about how we can assist you and the business ecosystem in Kenya.
