BIK members enjoy access to the greatest resource available for those looking to engage in business between Ireland and Kenya: other people doing the same.

BIK hosts quarterly breakfast meetings, facilitating business between Ireland and Kenya. Beyond the meetings, our membership is active in our online community.


Business Ireland Kenya is an association that helps those with professional ties to Ireland and Kenya connect, share and grow. We work to facilitate networking between our members and help them get the information and resources they need to be successful.

BIK is an initiative of the Embassy of Ireland in Kenya, which created the association in 2013 to help further trade ties between the two countries. We have an active and connected membership, with quarterly meetings and a thriving Online Community where people can share their experiences, challenges and opportunities.

Anyone with business operations that span Ireland and Kenya, or who wishes to establish similar operations, is welcome to join BIK.

Learn more about our organization here, and if you’re just beginning your business journey in Kenya, Ireland or the East African Community, you will find useful BIK resources here.




BIK offers invaluable networking opportunities, both at our quarterly meetings and in our Online Community.



Access the Online Community to connect with other BIK members and share insights and opportunities.
