In the year 2014, The youth at Slumcode Group partnered with other youth friendly organizations to host the 1st ever business related summit hitherto preceded by 8 years of hosting The Annual Grand Slumfest : An event that focused more on creating community based platforms for creative and talented youth from under-served low income neighborhoods with corporate organizations, institutions of higher learning and various development partners through a well planned festival in the heart of the slums. Grand Slumfest was ultimately a great success as it managed to bring together large corporate and multinationals like Safaricom, Huawei, Nokia and Google to share business models with our participants. This transformation and mind shift targeting the young entrepreneurs gave way to the East Side Business Summit of 2014. We then begun hosting sessions where young people could engage better on relevant issues that build their business acumen, professionalism and focus on income generators. Today this has led to the Alpreneurs Business Group – which is made up of young people, mostly mentees of The Slumcode Group programs since the year 2008.
