Moi University beats 26 public and private universities in business and entrepreneurship contest

By Lee Mwiti | July 21st 2016

A team of students from Moi University has emerged champions in this year’s Enactus Kenya National Business and Entrepreneurship Competition. Moi University group, which will represent Kenya at the Enactus World Cup in Canada later this year, beat other teams from 26 public and private universities.

The team’s three projects were recognised for innovation and community impact. The first involves chicken brooding using the “Chepkube” environment-friendly stove brooder, the second aims at reducing child mortality rates using mobile phones to remind mothers of immunisation dates, while the third seeks to address health problems caused by high levels of fluoride in water.

“We aim to recruit  over 5,000 students from all over Kenya to grow their leadership skills, current market demand information and innovative ideas that attract investment,” said James Shikwati, Enactus Kenya Country Leader. Enactus Africa Nazarene team was the first runner-up with their “Taka Smart” social enterprise that offers reward points in exchange for recyclable waste.

 The second runner-up, Enactus University of Eldoret, presented project “Faida Mazao” that seeks to curb food loss and waste through solar powered cold storage facilities.
