Project Description

From 1 to 4 October 2019, Close the Gap organised a strategic partner mission with an executive delegation from the Arrow headquarters in the United States. This 4-day “Silicon Savannah Tour & Arrow Digitruck” mission took the participants to the thriving cities of Nairobi and Mombasa.

I was proud to present both the Innovation Hub in Mombasa and the Circular Economy Hub in Nairobi to the American delegation.

In Mombasa, we attended the kick-off event of the Leap² Innovative Light & Circular Economy Challenge. We also visited the Arrow-sponsored Digitruck. In Nairobi, we had the honour of welcoming His Excellency the Belgian Ambassador Nicolas Nihon & his deputy Mr. Ivan Feys and the American deputy in the Circular Economy Hub.
