Welcome to Leap Hubs website
Leap Hubs is a Leadership and Entrepreneurship program piloted in Kenya in 2015, that provide guidance and space in secondary schools for highly motivated students to explore their ideas and learn what it takes to become business and social entrepreneurs. In Leap Hubs spaces students gain valuable skills including leadership, innovation, marketing, problem solving, product development, finance, and planning. In 2015, the Global Peace Foundation Kenya secured partnerships with Airtel, UN Habitat, Intel, Oracle, Chandaria Foundation, to introduce Leap Hubs in 24 public secondary schools. 96 business and social enterprise ideas were in various levels of incubation by the end of 2015.
The potential beneficiaries are promising secondary school students in Kenya who are recommended by their teachers and head teachers. It appeals to a select group of students who already have amazing ideas to solve a problem and who are willing to invest but lack the space, experienced mentors and resources to move their idea forward.
