                                                           WHO WE ARE

AfricaTalentbank.com (ATB),  is a company that seeks to challenge and empower its members; whether they are looking to work in the corporate world or, become entrepreneurs. ATB supports & encourages its members to take charge of their lives through: hard work, self discipline, self reliance, networking, communication skills & an entrepreneurial mind. It is well known that the route to success requires discipline, dedication & perseverance and, given the high unemployment rates amongst our youth, entrepreneurship is not a choice but a necessity, for many of our members. For as William Shakespeare said: ‘It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves’ .

WHY ENTREPRENEURS/ WOULD BE ENTREPRENEURS SHOULD ATTEND THE ATB ENTREPRENEUR BOOTCAMP EVENT on FRI 31 JULY.

  1. CEO Speakers –  We understand that being an entrepreneur is tough. So get motivated and inspired as you  listen to the stories of the entrepreneurs below who are running successful companies. They discuss their entrepreneurial journeys and  the challenges they have had to overcome.  We find out who & what gave them that impetus to start their entrepreneurial journeys and to keep going? For many of them, it has not been plain sailing.

SPEAKER LIST

  1. Mr James Mworia (CEO, Centum Investment). James Mworia’s investment skills and ability to “buy low” and “sell high” has led to him being described as Africa’s Warren Buffet (the billionaire US investor).

  6. Miriam Mukasa (MD, AfricaTalentbank.com). Miriam Mukasa is founder of AfricaTalentbank.com (a recruitment, training & entrepreneurship company). Miriam will discuss why (due to the over supply of graduates), many of Kenya’s youth need to act now and take up entrepreneurship rather than sit by an wait for others to create job opportunities for them.
