Nation Media to Train University Students in Entrepreneurship

University Graduates

Nation Media Group has organised a training for University students to receive mentorship in entrepreneurship.

The training will be conducted by chief executive officers from Kenya.

The one-day session labeled ‘Shaping the Future of Entrepreneurship Through Innovation’ will be held at the University of Nairobi in Kenya on June 15.

“It will be mind-opening and something different, the chief executives should give us something applicable to our generation and how they made it,” said Carthy Macharia, a third-year Economics student at the Thika road-based Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology when she registered for the forum last week.

The mentorship programme is aimed at creating a platform for public and private universities  to interact with business executives.

From the interactions, learners will be selected from the students to get more mentorship and progressively train them in readiness for the job market.

Dignataries, chief executives from the private sector including Vivo Active Wear founder and chief executive Wandia Gichuru and Rosemary Okello, founder of the regionally acclaimed Makini Schools will grace the occasion and also act as trainers.

Nation Media Group holds mentorship programmes four times a year.  It is aimed at fighting the overwhelming poverty and unemployment in Kenya and East Africa at-large.
