Intellectual Property and SMEs in Kenya


SMEs play a major part in innovation, besides providing an alternative source of employment to millions of people. The article looks at steps Kenya is taking to institutionalize SMEs into official government policy and legislative instruments. Commendable as that is, the article posits that more effort must be put into educating stakeholders in the SMEs sector on intellectual property rights. This will assist them into fully taking their place in the government of Kenya's Vision 2030, that aims towards making Kenya a newly-industrializing middle-income country, capable of providing a high quality of life for all its citizens by the year 2030.
