“Africa rising started in the tech space…The status quo is cracking”
Tonee Ndungu is an innovation architect, techpreneur, and the founder of the platform revolutionizing education in Kenya, Kytabu. Tonee built his first non-profit when he was only 25, The Kenya Wazimba Youth Foundation, raising four million Kenyan Shillings to travel to schools across the country talking about leadership. It would only be a few years before Tonee would launch his first company. The company’s eventual failure wouldn’t deter him, he just built another. This company, Nailab, went on to become the largest ICT incubator in Kenya which raised €5 Million before he turned 30– including a $1 million partnership with the World Bank
Kytabu, is valued at $5.6m and is the education platform the Kenyan government will use to roll-out its laptop program with Safaricom and Microsoft. Tonee was inspired by his own struggles with education. He battled through the Kenyan education system with dyslexia, relying on audio books or simply falling behind. His inability to absorb information like his peers tethered him, but it was also his launchpad, making him the entrepreneur he is today. Tonee is a prolific speaker, having spoken at TEDxNairobi, TEDxKibera, TEDxPSU, and TEDxChange Amsterdam.
