Through the incubation hub, Small Medium and Business Enterprises (SMMEs) will get access to the ICT-related markets in a timely fashion.
Cisco’s incubation hub in Kenya is named the Cisco EDGE (Experience, Design, Go to market, and Earn) Incubation Center, a platform meant for SMMEs to work with Cisco’s global experts, allowing more businesses to bring customers and clients to the center to experience Cisco’s technology solutions. Additionally, Cisco said that the incubation hub will have around 30 SMMEs for each cohort.
Cisco has collaborated with Kenya-based Whitebox Initiative to conduct training at the Cisco EDGE Incubation Centre. Furthermore, Cisco will also provide some facilities like complete business tools and services—workspaces with high-speed broadband connectivity, video conferencing, collaboration platforms, boardroom, as well as training facilities. They will also be connected to Cisco’s global experts who will help them to gain business skills in the digital sphere.
