Sankalp Africa Award
Vision 2030

Support local start-ups

The announcement that three Kenyan start-ups were last week crowned winners of a continental award for entrepreneurs is a step in the right direction. We aver that such initiatives like the Sankalp Africa Award will go a long way in helping the country achieve its Vision 2030 development blueprint.The only way such organisations can thrive is by helping them achieve their respective goals. It is quite commendable that three organisations from the same country scooped the top three honours.It just goes to show that there is a wealth of talent in the country just waiting to be tapped.The government should also play its role by ensuring that the operating environment for these start-ups is made as conducive as possible.It would be defeatist having such viable ideas cut short by red tape and other hurdles that are prevalent in state bureaucracy.The onus is on the country to roll out various measures that will help promote entrepreneurship in the country.That is the only way we can ensure that local enterprise thrives to greater heights.
