Stanford University Business Program to launch in Kenya


Stanford Seed, a Stanford Graduate School of Business-led initiative committed to enabling business owners to lead their regions to greater prosperity, launches in Kenya Press conference on May 27, 2016.

A Stanford Graduate School of Business programme is set to take root in East Africa with the launch in Nairobi in a few weeks.

Stanford Seed is an initiative committed to enabling business owners to lead their regions to greater prosperity. The East Africa launch will build on the success of the program in West Africa in partnership with Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies.

The first group of promising business leaders selected by Stanford Seed will gather in Nairobi from May 27 to begin a 12-month transformational process led by world-renowned faculty from Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Aimed at driving sustainable growth in the East African regional economy through private-sector-led development, Seed will train these established entrepreneurs from Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and Ethiopia, in a yearlong, interactive, educational journey based out of Seed’s new regional center in Nairobi, Kenya.

Seed’s expansion into East Africa is intended to bolster and scale existing businesses in the region. Thirty-one CEOs, founders, and executives have been chosen to participate in the pioneering program.

Each member of the cohort was selected based on their leadership capacity and the growth potential of their business. The mission of the initiative is to leverage the innovative and entrepreneurial mindset that is fostered at Stanford to help businesses in developing economies create new jobs, and ultimately, end the cycle of poverty.

The Seed Transformation Program will address specific regional challenges such as leadership, strategy, value-chain innovation, and most importantly, will deliver an invaluable network of like-minded individuals from the Silicon Valley to Sub-Saharan Africa.
