Welcome to Silicon Savannah
LelapaFund team is in Nairobi! As we embark on our journey to crowd-invest Africa, it felt natural for us to make a first stop at the African Mecca of technology and innovation, Nairobi’s iHub. As we’re stepping into the building we bump into Erik Hersman, co-founder of mobile app Ushahidi, founder of BRCK – a backup generator for the internet, and co-founder of Savannah Fund. A very nice chat with him revealed some of BRCK’s recent production delays (we’re looking forward to receiving ours!). Now we’re heading to the 3rd floor for our meeting with Mr Mbwana Alliy, Savannah Fund‘s Managing Partner and fountain of wisdom for all things tech in Africa.
