Once selected from a pool of applicants, promising SMMEs are invited to an 8 week training and assessment where they develop an investment proposal with the help of a mentor from the Centum Group. This process that culminates in a presentation before a panel of judges, who award funds to promising SMMEs as needed.

VICTOR SHIKOLI COO at HydroIQ

Electrosoft Limited hopes to establish links with the Centum Entrepreneurship Program by seeking a slot through the official application in 2016. We developed and launched our first product SmartTap and Smart Dispenser in February 2015 aimed at improving public hygiene through hand washing and effectively reduce water wastage and cross contamination in urban areas and public utilities. I hope to gain the business principles, i.e marketing, business structure, legal and debt verses equity. Electrosoft does its business here in Kenya majorly Nairobi but hopes to expand and get to other parts of the country and beyond East Africa once we acquire some good funding as financials has not only been a challenge but also human resource as to how we may even hire a qualified skilled personnel and there is little cash to sustain. Therefore we hope by participating in this program it will basically improve our skills to bring more value in the industry.
