Nairobi Garage is opening doors to its fourth co-working space in the Spring Valley area of Nairobi, to meet the growing demand of flexible working spaces.

Nairobi Garage // Spring Valley adds a further 28,000 sq ft of workspace – housing 450 desks, and 22 private offices – to the Nairobi Garage network. The new location – located in The Promenade – is the most premium space to date; with boardrooms fully equipped with video conferencing facilities, and design thinking rooms on hand to support the creative work of members. 

In response to the growing reputation of events hosted by Nairobi Garage, the Spring Valley facility also scales up the network’s available events facilities with an outdoor deck with a 300 person capacity, suitable for events, breakout work, and team building and collaboration sessions.

The design of the new premises reflects the increasing number of corporate entities and established businesses opting for the flexible work solutions pioneered by Nairobi Garage, which allows companies to remain agile and responsive to their changing space needs, while also relieving them of the logistical burden of long-term leases and providing staff with a more dynamic work environment in the core of the innovation ecosystem. Unilever Kenya is one such corporate that has selected Nairobi Garage as its headquarters in the city, and now forms part of the Garage community.

All Nairobi Garage spaces are serviced by incredible internet connectivity, thanks to a wider partnership with Liquid Telecom, aimed at supporting the growth of the digital entrepreneurship in Kenya.

“Nairobi Garage offers something far beyond the mundane office model of working – we provide vibrant spaces, geared towards improving productivity and creativity, as well as a fantastic network of Nairobi’s brightest business and tech leaders, and entrepreneurs. Our new space along General Mathenge is exceptional, and we’re really excited to open our doors in the new year,” says Hannah Clifford, director of Nairobi Garage.

With the addition of the Spring Valley location – which will open its doors in January -, Nairobi Garage now operates four spaces spanning Nairobi, offering over 1,500 desks.  Members have the ability to drop in and work from any premises at no extra cost, and can use the meeting rooms and facilities in any location. 

With the new premises filling up fast, a 10% discount is on offer to all new members signing up before the doors open in January.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
