Growth Fund Call For Applications Opens February 2019!


Our call for applications for our newest fund: the Growth Fund - developed in collaboration with Agence Française de Développement (AFD) - is now open and will be receiving applications from 13th February to 13th March 2019.

This facility targets mature businesses that have been in operation for at least 5 years, with annual revenues exceeding KES 10 million. The businesses of interest operate in the following creative economy value chains/sub-sectors:

  • Fashion, apparel and accessories

  • Live cultural events (music, shows, venues, festivals)

  • Digital media content production and distribution

We aim to invest a minimum of KES 5 million and a maximum of KES 10 million in each successful enterprise.

We also recently launched and opened a call for applications for two other funds: The Cultural Heritage Fund and the Young Women in Creative Enterprise Fund. We shall be receiving applications for these two funds until 25th February 2019.

We are happy to be able to open these three facilities to contribute to the sustainable growth of creative enterprises in Kenya. We also intend to continue our work within the region, focused on strengthened relationships, targeted market intervention and holistic business development.
