The Kenyan coast was recently ranked the second most preferred region for start-ups after Nairobi, affirming its growing popularity with businesses according to the latest StartupBlink Global Startup Ecosystem Index report (2023). The vibrant culture of Mombasa is home to historical attractions and vast beaches and has become notorious for attracting Nairobi middle class and foreigners over the years increasing investments in sectors such as real estate and hospitality.

The lower cost of living compared to the capital, availability of raw materials and the ongoing infrastructure developments in the city are generating significant social economic transformation. The government reverting port operations back in the coastal region has restored thousands of jobs as the Dongo Kundu Special Economic Zone and completion of the Mombasa Integrated Road Network have seen more investments in the area.
