Bentos Energy on KCB Lions Den
Our founders, Symphrose Ochieng and Ishmael Hezekiah were privileged to make an entreprenurial pitch before the 5 judges of KCB Lions Den show in its first season.
KCB Lion’s Den mainly seeks entrepreneurs looking for financial, social and intellectual capital for their new and innovative businesses in the country.
For the first season, over 5,000 applications were received from sectors such as agriculture, design, education, energy, ICT, health, publishing, food & beverages, manufacturing, environment, entertainment, and service.
72 local businesses made their pitches on the show over a period of 12 weeks and 30 lucky entrepreneurs were able to convince the 5 celebrated and renowned Lions to invest their own money in exchange for equity in the local businesses.
KCB Lions’ Den Show is in line with KCB’s 2jiajiri initiative that aims to create job creation opportunities for the youth and giving them skills for self-employment while at the same time providing funding, nurturing and mentoring future entrepreneurs.
