From: Tim Weiss <weiss.tim at hotmail.com>



there has been an increased interest and also need to investigate
entrepreneurial work outside of well-researched domains. We have taken up
the issue and compiled an edited volume that has now been published as part
of the Palgrave Studies of Entrepreneurship in Africa series called *Digital
Kenya: An Entrepreneurial Revolution in the Making*.



This book is now available as an open access digital download
<http://download.springer.com/static/pdf/884/bok%253A978-1-137-57878-5.pdf?originUrl=http%3A%2F%2Flink.springer.com%2Fbook%2F10.1057%2F978-1-137-57878-5&token2=exp=1481644416~acl=%2Fstatic%2Fpdf%2F884%2Fbok%25253A978-1-137-57878-5.pdf%3ForiginUrl%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Flink.springer.com%252Fbook%252F10.1057%252F978-1-137-57878-5*~hmac=734ba400a9d9523788ee2fd8bac39dd46a863c61fb6827376bec683fada4d70e>
and in print <http://www.palgrave.com/gb/book/9781137578808> and is the
first of its kind to offer key insights into a single African country’s
technology story. Across 15 chapters and 14 one-on-one interviews, *Digital
Kenya* asks why establishing ICT start-ups on a continental and global
scale remains a challenge and looks at what powers the globally celebrated
Kenyan success stories of the likes of the iHub , BRCK , M-Pesa and M-Kopa,
all of whom have been instrumental in playing out Kenya’s tech narrative on
an international stage.



Some of the reactions to *Digital Kenya* come from…



*Garry Bruton*, Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University:
“Scholars focused on entrepreneurship, corporate strategy in emerging
markets, digital business, or Africa need to take advantage of this
significant book and the great insights it provides.”



*Bob Collymore, CEO Safaricom:* “…an essential guide to the new African
narrative.”



*Calestous Juma, Harvard Kennedy School*:  “…a rich source of lessons for
other African countries and beyond.”
