THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

Inaugural Entrepreneurship Workshop

Theme: Igniting Start-Ups

Venue: Hilton Hotel – Nairobi

Date: 11th July 2019

Time: 8.30am – 4.00pm

a.  Overview

Entrepreneurship is one of the few things everyone across the country can agree on as something to be promoted.

New, young and particularly growing businesses are essential to stimulating job growth, salary and wage growth, and raising standards of living. Unfortunately, despite its popularity, trends in entrepreneurship seem to be moving in the wrong direction. For several years, the rate of business creation in Kenya has been falling. Overall economic dynamism—the productive turnover of companies and jobs—has been declining in all sectors of the economy. These negative trends in entrepreneurship can be associated with discouraging economic trends, including stagnant wages and low economic mobility.

To address these challenges and explore exciting opportunities, ICPAK has organized a one-day technical entrepreneurship workshop that will help you gain knowledge on establishing and nurturing business start-ups to maturity.

The Institute will engage leading thinkers to stimulate and coach on creative innovation with focus on the following sub-themes:

Moving from an idea to commercialization – Igniting start-ups

  • Sustainable business model – Creating and building value
  • Basic Business Plan and the registration process
  • Small and family business management – the dos and don’ts
  • E-management-social Media and Marketing

Fundraising for start-ups

  • Financing options for small business and startups for aspiring entrepreneurs
  • Business obligations; how to calculate contributions
  • Case Studies

Governmental support for entrepreneurs

  • Opportunities in government services and doing Business with the government
  • How to handle ethics & integrity while doing business with government
  • Opportunities for funding in government
  • Case studies of entrepreneurial businesses and products that have made an impact
