App for small businesses in East Africa

MESH is the first online community for entrepreneurs in the informal economy. The app has a thriving community of more than 100,000 entrepreneurs in Kenya, connecting them to peers, role models, opportunities, and resources to empower them to build resilient micro-businesses. App features have been designed based on surveys of more than 1,000 entrepreneurs and small business owners in Kenya. MESHers create videos in which they share tips with their peers in accessible and relatable ways. 

MESH is part of Shujaaz Inc, a network of social ventures and East Africa’s largest youth brand. If your organization supports young entrepreneurs in Kenya or Tanzania, MESH could connect them with the information and peer support they need for growth. Get in touch with us to find out how.
