Young potential entrepreneurs better have their bootstraps fastened and their proposals dusted and sharp for a grand chance to realize their entrepreneurial dreams following the onset of the fourth season of KCB Lions Den set to grace our screens this coming June. The enigmatic series is set to grace our screens yet again this June for the fourth run and it promises to bang with an even greater level of action-packed and wit-fueled investor-investee business prowess this year. The previous series have been quite a watchful and personally, I cant wait to see what they good fellas at KCB have in store for us this time.
The 2jiajiri initiative which commenced in 2016 is part of KCB bank’s corporate social responsibility campaign has fast grown to be a local sensation in the business and entertainment spaces as it promises and never fails to deliver the best investor-investee relations in a simple yet interesting package that is both entertaining and informative for a viewer to enjoy and learn from the comfort of their own home (borrowing from the likes of the more popular Shark Tank and The Apprentice series). But why watch from the sidelines? Why not be part of the experience?
For those brazen enough to take this bull by the horns, the applications are open until the 22nd of June. To apply simply fill the form you will find on their website and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org link or you can download, fill then drop it off at any KCB branch.
Starting the venture of your dreams can sometimes be quite capital-intensive. A special amount of finances is sometimes needed to develop one’s business idea into proper realization, an amount that can, and in most cases, is hard to raise. Bank loans and credit services would be a worthy option to pursue but they often come with exorbitant interest rates that one can’t really guarantee repayment of given the risky nature of a new venture. Top of that, securing a loan often requires the risk-exchange of equivalent collateral or proof of solid creditworthiness, both of which can be hard to produce for a fresh newbie in the business scene. Friends and family can prove to be unreliable too in such times of progressive need. It would, in this case, be wise to pursue funding opportunities from willing investors, people who have a genuine belief and interest in seeing your business flourish. I find the KCB Lions Den to be an excellent place to start if your a young entrepreneur looking to get the cogs of your venture turning.
