Part 1 of 3 in this series. Kenya's technological innovation sector is flourishing. The spread of mobile phones has led to a host of innovations, such as the money transfer service M-Pesa, which has transformed how people buy goods and deposit their savings. Tech hubs providing support for young African entrepreneurs have mushroomed in recent years, offering a service that traditional universities are failing to provide. Looking to tap into this new boom, several multinational companies have opened African research labs in Nairobi. This three-part film looks at different settings for innovative research in Kenya — the ihub, Strathmore University's iLab Africa, and the IBM Research-Africa lab — and their roles in strengthening research capacity in Africa.
