The JASIRI Talent Investor is a fully-funded 1-year residential program that will guide program participants from idea generation, validation, prototyping, market-entry right through to venture creation.
The program is now accepting applications from aspiring Rwandan and Kenyan Entrepreneurs until 19th February.
JASIRI selects, develops, and invests in high potential aspiring entrepreneurs. They believe that high impact entrepreneurial success requires patient, holistic and contextualized support and thus aim to identify and remove potential stumbling blocks on the entrepreneurial journey.
They also have programs that take participants from ideation to venture creation.
JASIRI believes that entrepreneurial teams are at the heart of new venture creation and provides the entrepreneur with access to a diverse group of exceptional co-founders.
The program will introduce JASIRI Fellows to equally ambitious co-founders and will support them on an individual, team, and business level.
JASIRI is supported by the Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropy (Gray Philanthropy), who are also our members at Nairobi Garage // Kilimani.
Philanthropy takes a long-term approach to develop exceptional, responsible entrepreneurs on the African continent.
Existing philanthropic activities initiated by the Gray family over the last decade have reached thousands of learners in high schools through a leading Entrepreneurship Challenge and support to a community of over 1000 potential and actual entrepreneurs who between them have started businesses collectively worth an estimated 150 000 USD
