The Kenya Industry & Entrepreneurship Project (KIEP 250+), a partnership between the World Bank and the Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and Enterprise Development, aims to increase productivity and innovation within established Kenyan SMEs. The project provides technical assistance to eligible firms to improve their managerial and technical skills and enhance their access to and use of technology. The goal is to help create a vibrant, resilient, and highly professional group of SMEs that can be viewed as world-class and is able to compete internationally.
We are delighted to report that ADMI was selected to participate in the first cohort of the project. ADMI will receive technical assistance including a business diagnosis scan that will result in a performance improvement plan (PIP) that identifies the gaps that should be addressed to increase innovation and productivity. KIEP 250+ will offer an integrated package of consultancy and business improvement services – plus financial support to make the business transformation, expansion, or diversification highly affordable. Technical assistance will be provided by qualified 3rd party specialists chosen by the SME from the KIEP 250+ screened Business Development Service (BDS) Providers database.
This grant will enable ADMI to solidify its lead as a digital innovator in the TVET industry as well as increase our footprints in new markets. The technical assistance provided by this grant means that ADMI will have a greater capacity to support young creative technology professionals as they develop their skills and access job opportunities.
