Six amazing startups are set to pitch at Nailab’s AppIT Tech Event set to be held this Friday June 26th at the Nailab on Bishop Magua Center on Ngong road.
Though we don’t have the agenda yet, we presume this companies want to talk about their journey from the trenches to where they are now.
Top on the list is customer acquisition, PR, Marketing and branding, product-market fit, sales and just about everything.Many amazing apps are being built today right here in our own backyard and they tackle almost all the social, economical, religious and many other aspects of our lives. Most are motivated by the need to solve problems that we face in our day-to-day activities and they really are making it easier to go on each day assured of a better and easier tomorrow.
Just to mention a few; one of the stratups pitching is Plain Talk an anonymous chat app that allows users to post just about anything with their friends. Though we’re getting too old, the topical discussions on the timelines are pretty amazing and fun. Users need not to sign up or leave any data. Just download the app and start chatting right there and anonymously.
Another startup pitching that evening is Kejahunt.com, helping everyone to move house minus going through the brokers offline who just want to give you a jog around the estate to dirty houses so you don’t choose any. Kejahunt swoops in to save your day by offering you an app that you only need to download and request for that desired house and without leaving your desk, bed or whichever place you are , you got yourself that house. Easy, credible and convenient is what they live by. No wasting leave days, your pocket can handle whatever is thrown at it because, no dent and frustration is a tall tale you here from other people.
After anonymously complaining about your foul landlord on Plain and landing a new residence using Kejahunt, you need to familiarize yourself with the new neighborhood. You know, Nyumba Kumi Initiative, some amazing guys want to bring it online via an app called Ujirani.
Ujirani is a free app on your phone that allows you to connect with your neighborhood and share updates on the daily happenings of your area. Talk of an online platform that is more or less patrolling your area making sure you get all security updates, new developments coming up, a new mama mboga with better prices and the list is endless. You just need to download the app from playstore, join your community and share with your neighbors and that is how a great ujirani is achieved.
You have managed to let all that was bugging you off your chest through plain, moved to a new residence using Kejahunt and managed to create a good relationship with the people in your neighborhood through Ujirani. No it does not end there, how awesome is it to be able to go to work in the morning and at the same time you are picking up laundry fro m the dry cleaners and getting your drivers license renewed. No you don’t need wizardry to do all that at the same time as Taskwetu got you in many different places at the same time. How? They are the guys who want to make your life easier by running your errands no matter how big or small the task is, the job must be done! (As long as it is legal and within Nairobi). Get the app from playstore and play magician with it.
Can life get any easier? Yes it actually can and is getting easier. There are those days that you think you got money on your pocket and you are in a position to get your key ingredients for supper from your mama mboga or get a take away meal from your favorite restaurant but on getting there, shock horror, you got nothing on you but your visa cards. No you don’t sleep hungry or walk for many minutes trying to locate an ATM machine as your mama mboga is on LipaPlus.
