Sinapis has expanded to Rwanda this year, which solidifies Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda as our East Africa innovation hub. This April marks 25 years since the beginning of the Rwandan genocide that claimed roughly a million lives. Try to imagine the void created when a million lives are snatched from communities where they served as workers, business owners, doctors, teachers, pastors, parents, and mentors. This void combined with strong government leadership has created an urgency that has turned Rwanda into one of the most pro-business countries in the world.
You can start a business in Rwanda in less than a day! It takes less than 24 hours to register online. The government has cut the red tape around registration, visas, permits, and other regulations like property ownership and profit sharing. It is a great opportunity to take companies to scale. And we are thrilled to bring Sinapis to a market brimming with so much momentum and energy.
