Gearbox is Nairobi's open-access space for rapid prototyping and design. By providing easy, affordable access to the same tools and resources available in Shenzhen or Silicon Valley, we are empowering the next generation of Africa's hardware entrepreneurs.
Want to take advantage of all that Gearbox has to offer? Becoming a member is your first step. While anyone can attend our training classes, and events, only Gearbox members can use the machines on their own after Training.
