It's home to a number of education institutions from universities to colleges spewing out tech savvy and hungry youth intent on creating and gathering en masse in coworking venues with other likeminded souls.
Kenya is heating up with it being announced that the country is going to be the scene of the "Next Einstein Forum" (NEF) in 2020.
