Creatives Evolution Tour Nakuru Edition is our second workshop aiming to empower young and existing businesses to have a competitive advantage and also lead in creating a suitable Eco-system of Entrepreneurs/businesses in Kenya and Africa at large in every day evolving market trends. We focused on the Business Model designs, Financial Information, and the Entrepreneurship life cycle and discussed them in-depth together with experts.
Nakuru Edition took it to a notch higher having new facilitators on board who went overboard to make sure we came out not only empowered but well equipped with the right skills. The workshop was officially opened by Kinuthia J. Kirumba- Founder of Meskith Creations.
In June, Mr. Kinuthia had approached Meskith Creations clients only to realize some had closed down their businesses some even had resolved to temporary exit and some had just closed down their businesses as they looked for other opportunities in employment. This prompted him to do research and figure out what was the course otherwise Meskith Creations would be the next victim if he didn’t do something about it. Meskith Creations is in business to business industry what affects other businesses will still affect you directly or indirectly. Mr. Kinuthia found out that 50% of the businesses in U.S.A don’t make to their fifth birthday and in Kenya, only 46% make past their first year according to the standard media report that can be made in assumption that beyond 70% of businesses in Kenya don’t make to their fifth birthday. Therefore this is where Creatives Evolution Tour was born to find the right tools for making businesses be it a start-Up or grown enterprise could use to increase their life span in Kenya.
“Let’s come together and Evolutionize the economy of Kenya towards Africa Transformation.” Kinuthia J. Kirumba Says.
