The time to act on your startup idea as a student is NOW.
However, most students are hesitant to implement their innovative ideas due to lack of funding and accessible mentors and business coaches to guide them through the world of business.
Since the advent of devolution, the coastal region is increasingly developing a conducive environment for young entrepreneurs to start and run businesses. Organisations, private investors, business coaches and mentors are becoming interested in business ideas from the coastal region that can be developed into viable products for the market.
One such organisation is Techbridge Invest that is located on the 2nd Floor of City Mall in Nyali, and offers budding entrepreneurs a range of services including training in entrepreneurship, quality assurance, professional mentoring and coaching, financial modelling and an incubation hub for them to develop and grow their entrepreneurial ideas into viable business.

How does seed funding sound to you as a young entrepreneur with a business idea that you believe can be transformed into the next big thing?
As a student at any Kenyan university, Pwani included, there is no guarantee that you will get an employment after your degree. However, with your innovative idea, funding from Techbridge Invest and several mentors and coaches helping you through, you will not only be able to employ yourself but also several other people thus contributing positively to the Kenyan economy.
