Mission Statement

KickStart's mission is to help millions of people out of poverty. We promote sustainable economic growth and employment creation in Kenya and other countries by developing and promoting technologies that can be used by dynamic entrepreneurs to establish and run profitable small scale enterprises.

Description

KickStart believes that self-motivated private entrepreneurs managing small-scale enterprises are the most effective agents for developing emergent economies. These entrepreneurs can raise small amounts of capital ($100-$1,000 US) to start a new small enterprise and can manage the day-to-day affairs of such a business. However, it is difficult for them to identify viable business opportunities, access the technologies required to launch the new enterprises, and widely market new products. KickStart helps them in these vital areas. In addition to promoting small enterprise development, KickStart's technologies, expertise, and methods are widely applied throughout Africa to support programs in agriculture, shelter, water, sanitation, health, and relief.
