Startup Kenya Youth Trust


The last post as Harry


Since 2006 I have enjoyed your company and patronage as I put down my thoughts in black and white on this blog. I started this blog to share my experiences in entrepreneurship but I also ended up learning, making new friends and developing my own ideas on what I really wanted to do.

For a long time I have known that the knowledge and experiences I have been fortunate enough to acquire must not be confined within me, but must be used to generate wealth, success, and fulfillment for others. Today I therefore wish to announce that I will be donating my blog and twitter handle to the charitable trust Startup Kenya Youth (SKY) Trust .  I look forward to continuing our engagement under the banner of SKY Trust.

A bit about SKY Trust.

SKY Trust was founded in 2013 by Harry Karanja. SKY Trust's goal is to act as a catalyst to entrepreneurship among people under the age of thirty

Harry started his first business when he was fifteen, retailing bread and biscuits to his fellow students at a 50% margin. Although the business only ran for a month, the thrill and excitement that making money had on him would remain throughout his later high school years and college years. It was the bite of this entrepreneurial bug that saw him at the age of 21 - while a student of law at the University of Nairobi - co-founding SoftLaw, a pioneering legal publishing firm that also made him a millionaire before he graduated.

SoftLaw's success helped Harry found Genius Executive Centre (GEC) in 2005; a commercial business incubator that revolutionized how businesses access office space in Nairobi CBD. With GEC Harry discovered his love for starting and helping young entrepreneurs establish their businesses, which directly led to the founding of SKY Trust.

SKY Trust assists young entrepreneurs through financial support, management consultancy, office facilities, business process outsourcing. mentorship and coaching. It seeks out inspirational stories of young entrepreneurs to motivate other potential young entrepreneurs and galvanize an entrepreneurship movement in Kenya

We welcome you on board.
