After Office Hours with Tesh Mbaabu

Starting a business is full of exciting challenges and potential learning opportunities gained from the risks that come with it. Understanding these unique obstacles may prepare professionals to handle them if they encounter any as they start a business.

In an ultra-competitive business world, these challenges are quite inevitable. Fortunately, entrepreneurs also have more resources than ever before to tackle those problems. There are also a number of entrepreneurs who have gone before and pushed boundaries by establishing priorities, setting goals, and developing systems to achieve those goals.

From raising capital to managing teams, entrepreneurship is never an easy uphill task, there are always low moments which in most cases can be more than the highs. In fact, most people opt to try both worlds of entrepreneurship and employment.

So how does one push the boundaries in a world where we are all programmed to find employment? Join us for an After Office Hours session with Tesh Mbaabu, Co-founder and CEO of Mesozi Group.

During the session, Tesh will share with us his entrepreneurship journey as a young entrepreneur spanning close to one decade. Over the years Tesh Mbaabu has implemented several projects in Kenya. With his numerous national and international recognitions, he has won the trust of investors ready to support the East and West African expansion of his B2B platform.
