The Gearbox ecosystem is a unique platform in Africa that enables advanced hardware innovation (mechanical, electrical and electromechanical).
This setup enables startups to access the complete innovation value chain from idea to mass manufacturing, servicing the young innovator to large companies.
As part of the Gearbox Ecosystem, Gearbox Europlacer’s virtuous circle business model reinforces that social progress should drive financial success.
As a for-profit entity, Gearbox Europlacer will contribute a percentage of revenue to Gearbox (a not-for-profit organisation), to harness local talent, retain economic value within the country, and ultimately, positively impact Kenyan GDP.
Collaboration (via partnerships and strategic alignments) with all stakeholders in the electronic hardware innovators value chain , is critical to our success.“Stimulate the creation and manufacture of African designed intelligent solutions that solve African problems.”
We do this in three ways: Collobarate, Innovate, & Propagate.
