Founded in 2007 on the premise that skilled business people in developed countries can have a genuine impact on poverty in developing countries by providing appropriate, targeted mentoring support to small businesses in those countries.
Clients include the Department of Health (Skills Venture is an approved provider for their Executive Talent Scheme), the Military Stabilisation Support Group (a unit of the UK Armed Forces), and numerous individual mentors from a range of backgrounds, from JP Morgan and WPP to small consultancies. We have a range of individual and corporate case studies.
The directors, Will Snell and Rob Breare, have extensive experience in both the corporate world and in the government and voluntary sectors in both the UK and overseas. They have spent eleven years running a successful UK charity working to support education in rural parts of Kenya (Harambee Schools Kenya).
Skills Venture works with a range of partner organisations in Kenya. Our skills mentoring partners include Barclays Bank, Technoserve, Growth Africa Consulting, the Kenya Youth Business Trust and the Kenya Association of Women Business Owners. We also have excellent relationships with the Government of Kenya and with the UK Department for International Development.
