With offices and operations in Nigeria, Zambia, Ghana, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Bluechip Technologies says Kenya is one of its best locations till date.

According to co-founder, Olumide Soyombo,

“From the process of registrations, getting licences and fixing all the necessary requirements to run a business here, Kenya has been one of the easiest businesses set up rates for us till date,” he said.

Kenya is currently ranked number 61 in the World Bank’s ‘Ease of Doing Business Index.

Apart from this ease of doing business, the choice of Kenya for Bluechip as the major East African hub is predicated on political and macro-economic stability in the country, strong social and physical infrastructure, skilled human resources and a fast growing economy.

Bluechip Technologies is registered partners with OEMs like Oracle, Microsoft, Dell EMC, HPE, Veritas, and Symantec, and also works with top organisations in Nigeria and around the world. The company will now bring this experience to bear in the Kenyan market and East Africa.

In Kenya, the company said it will also ‘leverage on the maturity of the technology climate to collaborate with other IT service providers to build an ecosystem for the country. And also localise its human capital’.
