Kenya Industry and Entrepreneurship Project
The Kenya Industry and Entrepreneurship Project (KIEP) is a US$50 million project that will be implemented by the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Cooperatives (MoITC), with support from the World Bank Group over the next six years between 2019-2024. KIEP aims to increase innovation and productivity in select private sector firms in Kenya by strengthening the private sector (including startups, SMEs, incubators, accelerators, technology boot camp providers, etc.) through financial grants and technical assistance.
KIEP is fully aligned with Kenya’s Vision 2030 of transforming the country into a newly industrialized and globally competitive middle-income country. The project aims to deliver this industrialization agenda by strengthening the entrepreneurship ecosystem, increasing firm-level innovation and productivity, and developing technically skilled talent in the country.
