The venture studio targets to help build 300 next-generation startups over the next five years.

In February 2020, as the world was shutting down, and as businesses downsized on account of the Covid pandemic, John Kamara was busy establishing another new startup Adanian Labs in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital. It had taken him two years to finally make this dream a reality, and nothing — not even the pandemic — was going to derail him.

And so, swimming against the tides, he set up the venture studio in partnership with co-founders Irene Kiwia and Bendon Murgor.

“People thought we were crazy,” Kamara, who doubles up as Adanian Labs’ CEO, told TechCrunch.

It may have been a tough period to build a business but they sailed through with their mission.

“We stay the course with startups and make sure they become successful businesses — We de-risk them from failure,” said Kiwia.
