What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

My challenge currently is to have more reach of the youths (18-26yrs) who would be able to see the greatest asset they carry (being their age) and make good use of it in entrepreneurship. On the business, my biggest challenge was access to funding but i have since overcome that by ensuring the mega project is fully funded.

Actions I’ve taken so far

I have already modeled the program in M&B to address that missing link for the youths and now on-boarding many into the program. We have also partnered with Wadhwani virtual university to deliver entrepreneurial training to the young generation

My future goals

To be a channel that will create a million job for the African youth.

My motivations to work with a mentor

Cross pollination ensures the brand never goes off.


About my venture

Mentorship and Beyond Started 2016

I run an initiative that seeks to mentor youths between 18-26years on entrepreneurship, grounded by virtue and ensure they come up with solutions for the SDGs. The model has proved successful where we have mentored over 300 youths and more than 20 successful and profitable ventures have been birthed. Am passionate as business analyst as well as a startup trainer to help people realize their dreams and actualize their ideas.

Countries of operation: Kenya

How I can help

My professional background

While under formal employment, i oversaw a business overhaul and strategy development. As a General manager, i grew the business by opening 4 branches in Africa.

What am proud of is the journey of conceptualizing and now implementation of a $132M mega project which i have been responsible at all levels. (concept development, Business planning, financial modelling and funding, Contractor selection and local approvals)

I also run a youth mentorship program (mentorship and beyond) where we've partnered with Wadhwani foundation and trains on entrepreneurship to the youths in my country. In addition am part of a global jury at younoodle.com under Wadhwani foundation where we review startup ideas from young people across the globe.


How to work with me

What I can offer

Self discovery Opportunity discovery Business modelling Customer and solutions Growth strategies My approach is both physical and online meetings. Email and chat platforms also helps.

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

A successful mentoring relationship for me is one that ends up with impact. The mentee/mentor engagement should be progressive. If within 3 interactions there is no notable progress, my take is re-evaluate if its needed in the first place. The end result of the efforts from the mentor is progress of the mentee. full stop.

How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start

Have a summary of their venture clear. Be specific on the exact problem he/she is looking solutions for and lastly be open to being mentored because sometimes "what we see as the problem is not necessarily the problem"
