We are a community of faith-driven entrepreneurs.
At Sinapis, we empower entrepreneurs professionally and spiritually using training and a global support network so they can grow to the next level and transform the world around them.
Our passion is small and growing businesses (SGBs) typically with 5 to 250 employees. These companies fuel the economy and account for 67-80% of new job growth. Their success goes far beyond the entrepreneur and brings employment and dignity to their community.

Where We've Come From
What began in 2010 as a Kenyan startup accelerator has grown into a global entrepreneurial ecosystem of over 1,000 alumni.OUR ORIGIN STORY
The Big Idea
The word sinapis refers to the mustard seed that Jesus spoke about, which starts out small yet grows to be great and support the life around it (Mark 4:31-32). And that’s the big idea. Sinapis helps entrepreneurs grow from seed stage to maturity and influence their communities in the process.
How We Equip Entrepreneurs to Create a Movement
As we expand into new countries, we look for places that have tremendous potential for economic and spiritual impact. Our global network includes programs that Sinapis manages directly, such as Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, but we also team up with like-minded partners who expand Sinapis’ programs into new markets like Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Liberia, Mexico, Mozambique, and Burundi.BRING SINAPIS TO MY COMMUNITY
Sinapis has hugely contributed to our business's growth, sustainability, and success. They have helped link us to potential investors/funding opportunities, publicized our business to the market, and provided ongoing strategic advice.

"When we started our Sinapis classes, we were asked to pick one business. I chose a new venture I was getting into - speaking. I would never have imagined that just over a year later I would be speaking on the biggest stage - TED. May this be a testimony that Kingdom business has a benefit here and in Heaven."
