The owners of Kenya’s small and medium enterprises are set to interact with over 500 captains of industries in East Africa at an event hosted by business network international.

The October 11 meeting will bring together entrepreneurs and business leaders to exchange business referrals.

“This will allow owners of the SMEs to interact and learn from business leaders from various sectors with an aim to change the scope of business in the East African region through a structured, positive and professional word-of-mouth program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals,” said the organisers.

According to 2017 Doing Business in Kenya report, the ease with which a business can be registered has a bearing on the number of entrepreneurs who start businesses in the formal sector, leading to jobs and more government revenue.

Kenya has the potential to be one of Africa’s success stories from its growing youthful population, a dynamic private sector, highly skilled workforce, improved infrastructure, a new constitution, and its pivotal role in East Africa.

BNI, which is positioning itself as a key player in business networking, has thirteen chapters in Kenya with its efficient business-networking forum driven by professionalism.

Speaking to East African Director, Elizaphan Muraguri “Getting business referrals is all about creating lasting personal relationships with other business owners. And that is why we strive to create a structured supportive system of giving and receiving business by farming for relationships that turn into businesses”.
