From: Tim Weiss <weiss.tim at>

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
and in print <> 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.

*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

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