Founders 101 Workshop

On Thurday, 26th September, I was in a room full of aspiring entrepreneurs and start-up founders eagerly awaiting for the evening workshop to begin. The event took place between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm at the Growth Africa offices, Cape Office Park, Ring Road Kilimani – Nairobi.

3 speakers came forth to share their knowledge and experience on forming start-ups and I’m glad I had the chance to listen to them because such knowledge is valuable for any aspiring techprenuer.

According to, a techprenuer is “a warm-blooded animal, male or female, who feeds on no sleep, limited resources and a passion for technology: aka, any person who creates a company around his or her vision of leveraging technology to change the world.”

In this first part of Founders 101, I’ll share what I got from the first 2 speakers. Most of the information is in point form; no need of writing a lengthy article since the speakers were quite straight forward.
