UrbUNx is a startup and scaleup acceleration platform to enable African entrepreneurs to create sustainable solutions to urban challenges. We support African founders through our knowledge, network & resources to scale globally with a particular focus on the Chinese market.

To kick-start our platform in Africa, the very first UrbUNx Basecamp is being launched and is  supported by World Bank & UN-Habitat to give a quick boost to startups looking to scale and/ or raise their next round of funding.

The basecamp is a 2-day training  on the nuts & bolts of building and scaling your business provided by top-notch entrepreneurs and experts that have built global businesses successfully.

Who should apply?

  • Startups founded by local African founders with a minimum viable product that are preparing for a pre-A or A funding round within the next 6 months.
  • Startups with a focus on urban issues in Kenya such as, but not limited to, inclusive urban finance, urban manufacturing and industrialization, urban basic services, and urban climate change responses with a potential to scale to China.
  • Startups with at least one co-founder (and no more than 3 cofounders) available to join the bootcamp in Nairobi.
  • Startups with traction in their home market. This can mean different things, but it’s typically a strong demonstration of product-market fit and/or some institutional funding for their expansion into new markets.
  • Startups that are serious about launching their product or service into the Chinese market.
  • One member of the founding team/one decision maker needs to be able to commit to the UrbunX Basecamp as well as the potential (fully paid) trip to China
