Kenya is the leading tech hub in Sub-Saharan Africa.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), Kenya’s so-called Silicon Savannah is unrivalled in Sub-Saharan Africa and only comes second to South Africa’s.

“Kenya has a track record for recording high levels of innovation, outperforming on levels of innovation relative to GDP for the ninth consecutive year, an excellent record at par with other lower-middle-income countries like India, the Republic of Moldova, and Vietnam,” reads WIPO’s latest Global Innovation Index (GII) 2019 report.
