Promoting Business Ties

Business Ireland Kenya

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 an engaging schedule of value adding activities each year.
Anyone with business operations that span Ireland and Kenya, or who wishes to establish similar operations, is welcome to join BIK.
