Username Investments sponsors April edition of Founders Breakfast Kenya

NAIROBI, KENYA Mar 26 – Username Investments has sponsored the fourth edition of Founders Breakfast Kenya, that is set for April 6th 2019.

The forum’s aim  is to bring  entrepreneurs together to share experiences with a view of overcoming some of the challenges experienced by startups at formation stages.

The coming edition’s theme is dubbed, Transitioning From Employment to self employment, in an effort to enlighten entrepreneurs on key steps to consider when leaving their jobs.

Some of the speakers expected to grace the event, are successful entrepreneurs who left high profile jobs to get into entrepreneurship.

They include, Edwin Dande Chief Executive Cytonn Investments, Eunice Mburu Chief Executive and Founder Bismart and the two sisters, Salome and Jackie Mwaura of Twana Rides.

“Before I made the decision to transit from employment to entrepreneurship, I spent some few years of self-encouragement and assurance that I am meant to do business. On 2nd July 2015, I tendered my resignation from Safaricom my earnings changed from a six figure salary to Ksh 25,000, but I had to pursue my passion. Looking back, it gives me a lot of pride that I have been able to impact lives of young people and more so, budding entrepreneurs,” said Reuben Kimani, Co Founder and CEO, Username Investments.



“A closer look at the theme of the fourth Founders Breakfast Edition, it presents a unique opportunity for aspiring and budding entrepreneurs to come, engage seasoned entrepreneurs and learn what it takes to transit successfully and excel in self-employment. There are many people who are still in employment and have the potential of becoming great businessmen and women but do not have the courage to pursue their passions, this is what has inspired Username Investment Ltd. to sponsor this noble event that will reach out to this group of people and encourage them to take action and pursue their destinies passionately,” he added.

Commenting about the coming event, Insideout Development CEO Hannah Muchuki, said the idea behind the forum was necessitated by the need to address challenges facing entrepreneurs in the country and Africa at large.

“They say, 80 percent of our economy is supported by the private sector which largely consists of the small and medium enterprises. On the other hand, most of these businesses fall before they are 5 years of age. Founders Breakfast Kenya is committed to ensure that we bring together all businesses and share ideas on how to address this,” Ms Muchuki said.

The event  is organized by Money Series Africa an online Entrepreneurs Hub and Insideout Development, a local branding and Business couch firm.
