Keroche Young Entrepreneurs Mentorship Program takes off

By Jeremy Ogolla

More young entrepreneurs across the country are set to benefit from the Keroche Young Entrepreneurs Mentorship Program whose second edition has now began.

Keroche Foundation representative Njoki Karuoya says the mentorship programme aims at encouraging the growth of innovative businesses by Kenya’s young entrepreneurs so as to promote job creation as well as help in boosting the economy of the country.

The role of entrepreneurship in growing the country’s economy cannot be gain said especially when it comes to innovations, start-ups of new businesses and generating of new jobs.

Entrepreneurial capacity is the pivotal ingredient in the blend that makes companies grow and excel in their problem-solving capacity.

In Kenya, most enterprises especially those run by the youth don’t usually make it to their fifth birthday mostly due to lack of funds as well as lack of proper skills to ensure the enterprises stay afloat.

Keroche Foundation started a mentorship in 2014 aimed at encouraging the growth of innovative businesses by Kenya’s young entrepreneurs so as to promote job creation as well as help in boosting the economy of the country.

After a successful completion of the first edition of the Keroche Foundation Mentorship programme, the second edition has now begun.

The mentorship program connects the upcoming entrepreneurs with relevant industry players who coach them on establishing and sustaining strong enterprises.

Karuoya says among the enterprises that benefited from the first edition of the mentorship program include Rexe roofing products, Balackjack Jeans, Primesoft Solutions, Regimental Forcequip Suppliers, Stawi Foods and Fruits as well as Topline Royal Services.

The mentorship programme is championed by Keroche Breweries CEO Tabitha Karanja under Keroche’s HAND-UP initiative as part of the company’s aim to give back to the community.
