Challenge Accepted!






If current rates of increase in sanitation held, it would take 200 years to get sanitation to all that need it! Join us in designing and launching a sanitation lean startup in Nairobi.

200 Years is too long to wait!

Nairobi is a dynamic city of startling inequality. Despite having a thriving startup scene and exciting technological innovations, millions of its residents live in crowded informal settlements. Urbanization and climate change are making a bad situation worse. Basics like water and sanitation are more expensive for the poor living in these settlements.

Archimedes Project believes that by bringing together the right technology, partners and ideas we can solve the sanitation crisis in Nairobi and around the world.

3 Days to Design It.

Join a dynamic enterprise design event that brings together professionals from across sectors and leaders with deep expertise to design a human-centered lean startup that will increase access to sanitation in urban Kenya.

365 Days to Build It.

Using the venture designed at the Ideation Lab, the Archimedes Project will work with a local entrepreneur and partners to launch and test the venture idea with customers within the year.
