Google has launched an initiative aimed at helping businesses in Kenya. The partnership with Safaricom, Equity Bank and Kenic called the Getting Kenyan Businesses Online (GKBO) program, is aimed at thousands of Kenya SMEs who do not have a website or online presence.
GKBO will provide free or subsidized services to help businesses to use web and internet technologies. They have also provided a free site building tool to assist small businesses with setting up their sites.
Other services GKBO provides are free web domains, online marketing through business listings, on going tips and education.
Kenyan businesses can sign up for the program immediately at www.kbo.co.ke.
