What we're about

The Africa Tech Startup Ecosystem Nairobi group is managed by A4Ayub Hands-On Labs.

According to Bill Gross, the founder of Idealab, the five key factors influencing startups' success are the idea, the team, business model, funding, and timing. Among them timing is critical but can't be controlled. That is why startups often need enough funds to keep going until the business model becomes viable.

At A4Ayub Hands-On Labs, a self-organizing group of professionals within the Artificial Intelligence Space for, by and with the entrepreneurship community of Nairobi, we endeavor to support startups with a team of professionals.

Our aim is to organize regular demo and networking events showcasing solutions built by members of the team targeting startups and SME's.

The way it works is we send through Call For Solutions from Individuals, Start-ups and SME's. The Call For Solutions describes the problem the start-up wants solved, we pick one of the problem, organize within the group and deliver the solution to the startup.

During the delivery, we hold a demo day explaining to members what the problem was and how the solution has been delivered and who has been the beneficiary.

During the delivery, we also give highlights and free advisory to members on how to solve similar problems - More like a training session.

The solutions we prioritize are AI related solutions to promote and advance the skills of Members in the Fields of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Machine Learning and Statistics.

Our target audiences are entrepreneurs, technologists, engineers, venture capitalists, angel investors, educators, financial professionals, corporate executives, attorneys, academics, bloggers, writers, content creators, and social activists.

Our mission is to build a vibrant, international entrepreneurial community in Nairobi, with memorable disucssions, presentations and content, creating deep, lasting business and social relationships.

All demo days and networking events are free of charge. In order to support the community, we do not charge every first unique problem solved by the team. However, any subsequent similar problems previously solved will be charged at a rate acceptable by both parties.

To enjoy free delivery of an AI based solution, fill in the Call For Solutions Form and have the members deliver a professional solution for you.
