Case study on the proof of concept funds: lessons from Kenya's start-ups

Africa is witnessing a surge in start-ups as attention shifts from churning job-seeking graduates, to job creators. Studies have shown that millennials are an entrepreneurial generation with as many as 67% aiming to start a business as opposed to climbing the corporate ladder to become CEO. The result is a rapidly expanding start-up scene with innovations hubs being created in major African cities such as Capetown, Accra, Lagos, Gaborone and Nairobi among others.

Kenya is a water scarce country and thus the achievement of this goal will not come easy but requires deliberate effort geared towards the development and expansion of the sector. The renewable water per capita in Kenya stood at 647M^3 against the recommended 1000M^3 United Nations recommended minimum.

Kenya solar PV market assessment

Solar PV products are widely known. About 90% of people have seen the products either in the markets places, community groups
or through media. At least 50% of Kenyan have owned a solar product for lighting, mobile charging or other application. New application of solar such as water pumping, irrigation and sterilization are promoted majorly through NGOs. Their penetration

in the market, however, remains low. The consumers cited battery maintenance as the major challenge experienced in the solar market, and although they are aware of the warranty, very few use it to get a replacement of their faulty products. At least 90% of Kenyans would prefer solar PV system to other technology due to cost saving potential.
