Kenyan co-working space Nairobi Garage has announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art entrepreneurship centre, featuring three floors of specially designed office, co-working and event space.
The new Nairobi Garage premises, which remain on Ngong Road at Pinetree Plaza, includes a spacious seventh floor space offering fixed co-working desks and a designer event space equipped to host up to 350 attendees, as well as an exclusive on-demand, drop-in club space.
On the eighth floor, visitors will find an extensive co-working area offering both flexi and fixed desks, as well as enclosed office space for companies opting for a more private environment. The ninth floor is reserved for deluxe enclosed offices – with individual balconies overlooking Nairobi – housing fast-growth ventures with expanding teams.
Nairobi Garage’s new location offers better transport links around town, and closer proximity to a range of supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and bars. It comes after the opening of a new co-working space in Westlands and the recent launch of its Business Services offering.
“We’re thrilled to unveil the all-new Nairobi Garage // Ngong Road today. With our old premises at full capacity, we embarked upon an ambitious project to design and create a state-of-the art headquarters for Kenya’s entrepreneurs and business leaders. Today we’re excited to open the doors to the new and improved Nairobi Garage, and look forward to welcoming old and new faces,” said Hannah Clifford, director of Nairobi Garage.
“In particular we’re excited to announce our new club space – a relaxed environment where club members can gain access to our ecosystem and services on-demand. Our club space welcomes entrepreneurs, creatives and investors who would like to be part of our network and take advantage of our various member-benefits, but do not necessarily need full-time office space.”
Nairobi Garage also features a brand new cafe run by Barista & Co serving delicious snacks, coffees, and treats; as well as an extensive balcony boasting panoramic views of Nairobi’s skyline.
To allow Nairobi to get to know the new space, Nairobi Garage will be holding Open Days every Thursday and Friday afternoon from August 31 until September 29. On these days, pre-registered visitors can spend the afternoon working at the hub for free, with the Nairobi Garage team on hand to provide tours, and help with new member registration.
All new registrations in this period will receive a 10 per cent discount on their first three months membership.
