ABC Bank partnered with Kenyan Entrepreneur to host a capacity-building forum for budding entrepreneurs and startups.
Held at the Thika Road Mall (TRM) along the Thika Superhihgway, the forum brought together over 100 entrepreneurs from various sectors including ICT, retail, sports, consultancy and construction.
Speaking during the forum, ABC Bank’s Head of SME Banking Lee Gachomba urged entrepreneurs to define and understand their value proposition to customers and identify gaps or problems in the market that they can provide solutions for, profitably.
He further challenged them to demonstrate integrity in their business dealings and to have a succession plan to shield their businesses against life’s uncertainties.
George Wachiuri, the CEO of Optiven Ltd- a real estate firm based in Nairobi- and a philanthropist, asked budding entrepreneurs to believe in prayer, embrace servant-leadership in their businesses to endear themselves to customers and attract repeat business.
ABC Bank’s partnership was a demonstration of its commitment to continue supporting SMEs to grow their businesses.
