"The opportunities that are given to young people is very encouraging."

    February 2018

    The experience is one of a kind as young people are taught how to come up with successful businesses and they see their ideas to fruition.The atmosphere is admirable as we work with professionals who see teamwork and success as the driving force.the wifi is fast and would encourage people out there who are interested to come on board.The members are quite hospitable and they are a breath of fresh air.The events held at the hub are educational and informative.We also have workshops and meetings at the hub where people brainstorm and engage each other in pro-active activities to assist

    "Incredible facilities, friendly staff! "

      February 2018

      The Somo Project provides a warm, welcoming space. Their rates are very low for the high quality service they provide. Perfect meeting space for any sort of organization, non-profit, or business. Also their staff is very friendly! Their staff members are not only from the community in which they work but are also well educated and highly equipped to deal with any sort of situation that may come up. Their space is always clean. Also, their space is central located! This makes their price and even better deal. I would recommend booking The Somo Project to any business or non-profit.

      " A space of communities"

        January 2018

        The somo Hub located in Kibera has supported entrepreneurs from Kibera and sorrounding neighborhoods. This mostly includes low income areas where women and youth have been given an opportunity to create sustainable ventures from within their communities hence a platform that gives you access to diversify and scale our ideologies. At the Hub there is access to fast unlimited network connection and high speed processor laptops. The Hub has a white board for trainings. Somo also offers advice on places to eat meals dependant on your preference. Being at Some Hub gives you a chance to interact with a range of entrepreneurs.This is more than a coworking space.

        "Lovely small work place"

          January 2018

          I like the Somo environment, everyone knows everyone, we are like a small tightnit family. We help each other around. You would think it is one organization working together. The office space is great, I cant ignore the internet service in Somo. The internet speed is so fast, I get information so fast. Considering my job is online and I do alot of meetings on the internet, this is one thing that really facilitates my service delivery. There is so much to say about Somo and their good services but the most important thing is that Somo hub is very affordable

          "Fast wifi, great community relations and professional host staff"

            January 2018

            They have an advisory program that any entrepreneur would love to be a part of. As an entrepreneur, that needed a space to gather my thoughts and also have a platform to fully put my mind into my passion; I was lucky to have chosen as a co-working space. Somo Hub, with Somo having the entrepreneurship training has a perfectly outlined training and programs that would be beneficial to any entrepreneur. Their already graduated entrepreneurs also offer amazing services to the community with one of the best eateries with cost friendly and health friendly foods. I will definitely go back to the Somo Hub.

              January 2018

              The Somo Project, with its stellar community relations, facilities needed for a working environment and the good staff makes up a good and definitely to go place as a co-working space. I have been to space, and their advisory program is something I am glad I got to knew about it as it fosters relations between organizations. Anyone in Kibera, would definitely enjoy working from the Somo Hub because of its environment. Anyone who is starting would feel comfortable enough to belong while those who are doing well accommodate start ups.The Somo hub environment itself is gives motivation for growth.

              "Simply the best!"

                January 2018

                Somo is full of amazing socially oriented entrepreneurs. It is a friendly environment full of innovative, community oriented people. Definetely a place to stop if passing through Nairobi! As well as coming to the space you should visit some of the businesses that are being grown out of low-income neighborhoods in Nairobi to meet needs of these communities. Somo works in Kibera, Kawangware, Mathare, Korogocho and Githurai currently and is expanding. Part of their program are 22 partner businesses who are providing life enhancing products and services to their communities and increasing employment opportunities. As well, there is a training program part of the accelerator that has now graduated 50 entrepreneurs. Stop by and see their amazing work!

                "Somo has a unique model for its entrepreneurs and is very resourceful to the communities it works in. "

                  January 2018

                  Somo team is friendly and creates a great working environment. Wi-Fi and resources like working space are good and you can access basic things that you need to work comfortably and achieve your objectives. I would highly recommend this space for anyone looking to grow their business. You will have access to great networks and mentors for your business and also have opportunities to partner with fellow entrepreneurs. I would highly recommend Somo coworking space to others. The working area is also spacious and can accommodate a good number of people at the hub. Pay Somo a visit and you will be glad you did.

                    "Conducive working space"

                      January 2018

                      When I got an opportunity to use Somo's workspace for my startup I was elated. This is because of how conducive and accessible the space is. The working space is well lit, well ventilated and Somo's staff are very caring. They have a way of making you feel at home like you own the space. Utilities are always available, we never miss things like internet and electricity. How they manage to provide us with internet when the service provider is having technical hitches is just amazing. I get alot of work done because of the general feeling around the Somo hub. I wouldn't have it any other way

                      "Energizing"

                        January 2018

                        I love working here because I get to be surrounded by inspiring local entrepreneurs developing a range of businesses (unlike the standard “tech scene”). Everything from organic food, to Eco home goods, to music schools and beyond. Very lively. Very energizing. It’s easy to get to (take the matatu from presitage to Olympic). Great local food around. My favorite is nutrition palace. Not the best place if you need to put your head down & not get distracted, but there are so many of those places around already. Definitely give it a try. The membership fees go to grants for applicable businesses, so you’re also helping out a good cause.
