    What people are saying about the East Africa Impact Investment Summit

    It was a pleasure to meet up with the TBN team in Nairobi, attend the wonderful conference and get the opportunity to speak to a number of TBN’s graduate companies and their inspiring founders. Johnson & Johnson is proud to partner with TBN. TBN plays a critical role in building the capacity of local entrepreneurs who are addressing unmet health needs. There is tremendous entrepreneurial spirit in Kenya.
