Kikao64, a new co-working space and ‘inspirational hub’ by the Van Woustraat Trust, an initiative of Hannie Kiprono Biwott, (Late Hon Nicholas Biwott’s widow), has been launched in the centre of Eldoret town to offer members a space to work and collaborate.
Kikao64, competing EldoHub, offers daily, weekly, or monthly passes through an online booking system to access its state-of-the-art amenities, including 100 fully serviced and spacious workstations, 3 private offices and 2 meeting rooms equipped with whiteboards and TV screens.
Kikao64 also offers auxiliary services such as printing and other key consulting services on company registration, legal, tax and audit matters and web design and social marketing.
Users will also have access to an in-house café and set in a spacious garden convenient for Eldoret’s new high-tech community of entrepreneurs, start-ups, nonprofits, freelancers and creatives.
Inspired by the Swahili word ‘kikao’ (a place of coming together), Kikao64 was conceived as a modern gathering place where people can work, connect and thrive, in a space designed to provide a fully serviced, flexible and conducive environment to increase business opportunities and provide access and exposure needed for success, especially for young people in Eldoret facing barriers, while also supporting non-profit organisations, athletes and startups in need.
Kikao64’s mission is to cultivate opportunities each new day for its community of individuals, businesses, startups and nonprofits to work, connect and thrive.
Members will have access to regular networking sessions, training workshops and special events ranging from guest speakers to art exhibitions to film screenings.
Kikao64’s ultimate strength lies in the quality of the people who work and gather there. With a diverse staff and vibrant, varied member community, Kikao64 is an example of the magic that happens when motivated people connect and are supported to pursue their dreams.
