    Mettā Nairobi, Riverside

    The Subtext in partnership with Mettā Nairobi is pleased to announce the first edition of the Subtext Sessions event series, where we will discuss the history and evolution of the motorcycle taxi industry in Africa, and the unseen consequences of its intersection with the internet.
    The conversation will be led by Osarumen Osamuyi, an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Africa's Talking Labs, Google Launchpad Africa Accelerator mentor, and the author of The Subtext, with participation from the audience, as well as a series of domain experts.

    No materials necessary for the audience to read before coming, but a notepad and an interest in transportation and the business of innovation will help. If interested, they could read the Subtext article about two-wheeled mobility for more context:
