In Conversation: Early Stage Investment for SMEs
We kickstarted our In Conversation series with a panel discussion on early-stage investment for SMEs.

Yoga at Ikigai Westlands
We rolled out our wellness initiatives for the year by introducing weekly yoga at Ikigai Westlands with Nyamwathi Gichau. Every Monday, we get to break away from work and set our intentions for the week through a one-hour yoga class in the garden.
