Updated review process for new applications from Kenya
WIDU introduces new process
Due to increasing demand, WIDU from now on will extend its score-based selection of projects to Kenya.
31/01/2023 - We are pleased to announce that since 2020 WIDU.africa has been able to support 500 Kenyan businesses, create and sustain 790 jobs in Kenya. We also carried out more than 1000 coaching sessions and paid out more than 740,000 Euro in Grants (including our Local Calls). Well done, Kenya!
We are very proud about what we have achieved in Kenya so far. At the same time, demand remains at a consistently high level. For this reason, in 2023 WIDU.africa will become more selective and will extend its score-based selection of projects to Kenya. This means that we will choose the best and most innovative businesses applying for WIDU.
