Applications for Gearbox Membership now Open!

Gearbox is Now Accepting Applications for Membership  

Salaams! Greetings!

Gearbox finally opens its doors to public membership on April the 4th !!!

Many of you have been waiting anxiously for this announcement and it gives us great pleasure to finally make it! We’ve been painstakingly reviewing all our plans, getting all our training manuals ready etc., and the date has finally been determined. We’ll be taking 20 members on board, due to space constraints, and hereby cordially invite all those interested to apply. We do expect to take more members on over the coming months as we work hard to ensure that our members get the best possible service we can provide.

Our last two posts outlined what happens when you sign up to become a member at Gearbox and what kinds of tools and equipment you’ll be getting access to as a member. Applications are welcome now and will be evaluated on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Gearbox is open to everyone, regardless of education, skill-level, or background, but priority will be given to entrepreneurs looking to use the space and equipment to develop new products and build new businesses.

Successful applicants will be able to access the space from April 4th.

To apply, please print and fill out the attached form, and deliver it in person to Gearbox Lite – 2nd Floor, Bishop Magua Centre (across from Uchumi on Ngong Road).

Once you’ve submitted your application, you will be notified over the next few weeks whether it has been accepted in this round or waitlisted until the next. If accepted, you can officially sign up as a member by paying your fee, taking the Orientation class, and signing up for your first training session (see this post for how training and tool access works)!
