With over 40% of the youth in Kenya between the ages of 15 and 34 years old unemployed, KCB is pushing for entrepreneurship as a solution to the high unemployment levels in the country.
KCB Bank has brought Lions Den business reality television show in a bid to provide entrepreneurs a growth platform by connecting them with funding and mentorship opportunities. And the good thing, the Group wants you in, regardless of what your friends or foes told you!
KCB Lions Den has five successful and renowned entrepreneurs and venture capitalists as the judges, to review your business idea and probably invest in it.
“We are asking budding entrepreneurs who have a bankable project or proposal to step up and audition for the KCB Lions’ Den show. This show will provide entrepreneurs with a forum to present their ideas to a group of investors and if they like the idea, they stand a chance to walk away with investment partners,” said KCB Marketing & Communications Director, Angela Mwirigi.
