Lions of Science is a charitable organization registered in Nairobi/Kenya and Berlin/Germany, aiming to empower and award Kenyan STEM students through the LoS Awards, our activities at the LoS Hub and from 2016 on by offering entrepreneurship capacitiy building for STEM students. The annual LoS Awards, during which the shortlisted students present their projects live infront of a jury, constitute the key element of the Lions of Science activities. Our vision and goal is to foster the improvement of social and economic livehood in Kenya, (East) Africa and beyond through promoting STEM and innovative early-stage entrepreneurship.
At Lions of Science we created a platform for awarding and promoting innovative early-stage entrepreneurship by Kenyan STEM (Science, Techology, Engineering and Mathematics) students. We do so through offering seminars, workshops and infrastructure at the LoS Hub. These activities are crowned during the annual LoS Awards where we celebrate and award the most promising innovative projects of those students who applied at LoS. From 2016 on we will additonally focus on entrepreneurship capacity building for STEM students by offering holistic programs win collaboration with LoS strategic partners.

"Unser Afrika-Bild verengt sich leider immer wieder auf zwei Blickwinkel: das Hunger-Afrika oder das Safari-Afrika. Dass dieser Kontinent vielschichtig ist, dass es zum Beispiel auch ein urbanes, akademisches Afrika gibt, wird meist ausgeblendet. Es ist gut, wenn ein Projekt wie 'Lions of Science' dazu beiträgt, akademischen Nachwuchs zu fördern und zugleich auch die Wahrnehmung dieses Kontinents zu weiten."news anchor - ZDF (German-TV)
