Who We Are

E4Impact was launched in 2010 by ALTIS, the Graduate School of Business, and the Society of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy) to train impact entrepreneurs in Africa in the start-up and growth of their businesses. In 2015, E4Impact became a Foundation that is driven by three key objectives:

  • Train a new generation of entrepreneurs capable of combining economic success with social and environmental impact.
  • Work with the faculty and staff of local universities to increase the capacity of creating and delivering unique, results-oriented entrepreneurship programs.
  • Facilitate the international ties between European and African companies attentive to social and environmental Impact.

The foundation has since grown its presence in Africa with 8 Centers creating an impact in 22 African countries; E4Impact Entrepreneurship Center Kenya is one of these Centers. E4Impact Entrepreneurship Center Kenya (E4Impact Kenya) started as an initiative of E4Impact Foundation offering an MBA in Impact Entrepreneurship in collaboration with Tangaza University. Funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS – Nairobi), the E4 Impact Foundation launched the E4Impact Accelerator in 2018; in a bid to create more impact by helping Kenyan businesses grow their enterprises, scale their impact, and act as a bridge for local, and regional and international markets and investment opportunities.

Within a short period, E4Impact was awarded the best Organization supporting impact entrepreneurs in Kenya at the National Green Growth Conference 2018. Now operating as a Center, E4Impact Kenya runs an Acceleration Program, and Incubation Program and works with partners towards social, environmental, and economic impact through multilateral projects, startup, innovation, and entrepreneurship << Learn More >>
