Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Development Cooperation and Digital Agenda Alexander De Croo will be heading on a two day mission for Kenya, Africa’s “Silicon Savannah” . He will be accompanied by Startups.be and Close the Gap. Nairobi is one of the most important tech hubs in Africa with a thriving start up scene. Under De Croo’s tenure, Digital for Development (D4D) has taken a central place in Belgium’s Development Cooperation policy, leveraging digitalization for development. Alexander De Croo will be accompanied by 40 Belgian startups, companies and NGOs. Together, they will get to know better the Kenyan tech ecosystem and explore new opportunities for cooperation. The startups and NGOs were selected by Startups.be and Close The Gap. Both are part of Alexander De Croo’s D4D platform launched by the Minister last year. Aim of the platform is to bring together companies, organizations and projects to improve the effectiveness of the Belgian Development Cooperation policy. Minister De Croo will also meet Kenyan ICT Minister, Joseph Mucheru.
