The Entrepreneur Café meeting in Nairobi always has some regulars and some newcomers. This was the constellation during the 6th meeting, too. James was specifically looking for a group like that, after trying to network in expensive hotels and at golf tournaments, where people are not really interested.
Caroline does general supplies and struggles with acquiring tenders. Zak has started to sell cloth material from Nigeria in Kenya and learned along the way that the Nigerian and the Kenyan taste are indeed different.
Generally, we want to “scale up”, as James puts it: not only do we want our businesses or business ideas to pick up and grow. We also want to take Entrepreneur Café to the next level. With the suggested topics for the coming months and the global convention in November, there is enough motivation to do so.
Entrepreneur Café is still the regulars’ table for hustlers, innovators, creative and motivated people. Zak comes to “talk problems out”, so that he gets them out of his head. James attends in order to get
to know people who share the same challenges. With them he can openly talk about his successes
and also his failures. And for Daniel the meetings are a great source of inspiration, motivation and
advice. We keep expanding our ideas and goals as we are learning from each other as well as from invited experts.
