Support at the MIT D-Lab Co-Design Summit

The October, MIT D-Lab gathered entrepreneurs and entrepreneur supporters from East Africa and around the world in Mukono, Uganda, to apply a co-design approach to overcoming barriers to scale for entrepreneurs in East Africa.

Villgro Kenya's Investment Manager Gibson Muriuki joined other stakeholders to take on the most urgent scaling challenge of entrepreneurs in the MIT D-Lab’s Scale-Ups Fellowship 2019 cohort.

clinicPesa, one of Villgro Kenya's portfolio companies benefited from the six-day summit which took the teams through a design sprint to dig into the challenge, generate creative ideas for how to overcome it, and prototype and test the idea with relevant stakeholders.
