Success Tips From 4 Top Business Leaders In Kenya

The urge to venture into business is increasing day by day.  Pursuing entrepreneurship either out of passion or as a way creating jobs is a great way to narrow down employment gaps. Here are some success tips from great business people;

Joanne Mwangi, CEO, PMS Group

Award-winning entrepreneur Joanne Mwangi started her business 18 years ago and has built one of East Africa’s leading marketing firms. In 2010, Professional Marketing Services Group became the first woman-owned business, and the only one since, to be voted number one in the Top 100 SMEs competition in Kenya.

According to Mwangi, one of the reasons for her success was widening her scope and geographical reach. For many years she focused purely on marketing but later realised that she was missing out on opportunities in other sectors and outside of Kenya. Mwangi advises entrepreneurs to study market needs and trends, innovate and diversify their businesses.

Lee Karuri, Home Afrika Chairman

According to Karuri, entrepreneurs aspiring for success should be competent in what they do, have the ability to network, work well within a team and build partnerships with others.

He urges entrepreneurs to uphold high standards of integrity and ethics.

Mugo Kibati, CEO, Miliki Ventures

The engineering graduate previously served as head of East African Cables and as director-general of Kenya’s Vision 2030 delivery board that is responsible for spearheading the implementation of the national blueprint aimed at making Kenya a middle income state by 2030.

According to Kibati, one key to success in business is to think big and always be innovative. He also urges that success is a process and not something that is achieved overnight.

Vimal Shah, Chairman & Co-founder, BIDCO Africa
