Our Community

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.

Our business association spans across industry sectors and enterprise sizes, creating excellent networking opportunities and providing a wide and deep knowledge base to draw on. BIK membership allows you to discuss both challenges and opportunities with your peers, helping you find solutions and access resources to grow your business.

BIK is open to all nationalities, but eligibility is restricted to businesses that involve ties between Ireland and Kenya or that wish to move into that space.

Our membership is active in our online community, which facilitates in-person connections.
