The latest Skunkworks was held on September 29 2009 at Teleposta Towers Nairobi. The focus of the tech group this week was on Tech & Entrepreneurship and four speakers were chosen to provide their insight on the new business models they are developing in Kenya. This comes at a time when the fibre cable initially considered the greatest thing since sliced bread has become a corporate product with targets to break-even before cheap internet costs can be passed on. The fibre is just one arm, so it was good to hear techpreneurs talk not just about revolutionary business but grappling and scaling numerous challenges of running such businesses in this part of Africa – i.e. business registration, financing, staffing, patenting, winning contracts, succeeding and making money.

Entrepreneurship Conference

This Saturday I attended an entrepreneurship conference at Strathmore University. It was a very interesting event, especially after barcampkenya 2.0 the previous Saturday.

Following up to my previous post about ZOHO, I’d like to talk a bit about a program called Entrepreneur Assist, which fits in perfectly with my experiences this weekend.

Entrepreneur Assist provides free business tools. From the site:

Welcome to Entrepreneur Assist, a collection of free business planning and productivity tools designed with entrepreneurs in mind.

You can:

  • Save your favorite Entrepreneur stories and web pages.
  • Create text documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
  • Customize and use business form templates.
  • Read a selection of free business books.
  • Schedule events and reminders.
  • Build your business plan.

The service is powered by ZOHO. Here are some video (which you can also find on my vodpod here) about this interesting service for entrepreneurs.
