AAK CONVENTION 2019
In the month of August, Pangea Accelerator participated in the AAK Annual Convention in Mombasa this August. The convention brought together professionals in the built industry both in Kenya and in the Commonwealth region to interact and discuss on the theme “Building Blocks in the Built Environment.”
Pangea’s Communication Lead, Jonathan Bii, joined the panel to speak on “Product Innovation for Buildings”. From an accelerator perspective, we drew several key lessons from the ShelterTech Accelerator program in Kenya and illustrated how innovation is driven by startups and highlighted approaches to adopting new technology for the market.
