Kikao64 is a flexible and creative coworking space in the town of Eldoret in Kenya’s Rift Valley, an agricultural hub famed for its long-distance runners. Inspired by the Swahili word kikao (a place of coming together), it was conceived as a modern gathering place where people can share experiences, ideas, and make meaningful connections. Kikao64 nurtures Kenya’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and offers free space for non-profits, athletes, and start-ups in need.
Regular social events and training workshops empower its community of passionate, socially-conscious leaders—encouraging them to positively transform Eldoret, Kenya, Africa, and the world beyond. Kikao64 offers members affordable, fully-serviced desk space, shared offices, and meeting rooms in a beautifully designed and responsibly renovated historic building. The in-house cafe, environmentally-conscious contemporary decor, and vibrant atmosphere make it a relaxed yet productive place to work and collaborate. True to its commitment to being a socially inclusive, open opportunity enterprise, the Kikao64 team represents a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
I see it as a kind of social center for serious people.
