2020 Kenya Business Startup Training
- Mar 26 2020 - Apr 4 2020
About the JourneyThrough our partnership with 410 Bridge, this global(x) journey will head to Kenya. From snow-capped mountain peaks to extensive forests to wide-open plains, it’s a geographically diverse country situated on the equator in Eastern Africa.
We’re looking for an insightful team that wants to connect and mentor newly graduated young adults who are running their own small businesses. We need business minded individuals who are willing to observe a graduate in action, ask questions, and exchange ideas for successful business ventures.
From Atlanta, the team will fly to Nairobi. Upon a late-in-the-day arrival, they’ll take a short ride and stay outside of the city for the first night. In the morning they’ll head to Ndibai, the community they’ll be serving and their “home base” for the remainder of the week. Depending on the size of the team, they may work in other nearby communities as well.
The goal of this visit and the team’s mission is to guide these young business owners as they work to build and sustain a successful business. The global(x) team members will spend a “day-in-the-life” with these entrepreneurs and have the opportunity to offer insight, feedback and real world examples. The trip also allows time to visit with and build relationships with local community members and families. The team will attend a Sunday church service together and, to wrap up the week, head out on an exciting safari!
If you have a heart for service and would like to use your expertise to help those who are venturing out into the business world, this may be the perfect opportunity. Apply today!
A visa is REQUIRED for entry to Kenya, and is the responsibility of the team member.

You're busy enough so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of forms you need to complete by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. We'll also collect your credit card information during the application process so that we can automatically credit your deposit to your account once you're placed on a team. And, we no longer need a paper copy of your passport. Just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile and you're done!
