Welcome to ICABUMPA-IN4IN conference 2015. The conference whose focus will be on business acceleration beyond incubation is timely in a period where many countries in Africa are grappling with high levels of unemployment. Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) are recognized as key players in growth of emerging economies. Therefore, gatherings such as this that seeks to educate and empower emerging and existing SME's are important.
The conference international keynote speakers bring with them practical lessons in diverse areas of growth of enterprises. There will be several presentations from students, faculty, policy makers and industry players drawn from institutions across the continent. The conference will also have budding young and established entrepreneurs exhibiting their products and services. All this will be happening at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) right in the heart of Nairobi city.
