Optiven Foundation, a charity started less than 11/2years ago by Optiven Real Estate, is not leaving anything to chance; Inspiration, motivation, mentorship and giving back to the society is its main focus at such a time like this. Mr. George Wachiuri, The Foundation Chairman, confirms the above Caption.

"Yes, With Ksh 2, 000,000 Revolving fund set aside by Optiven Foundation, We intend to fund the Best top 20-50 ideas from the deserving youth. In the month of August, youth from all walks of life will be givena chance to pitch their Best ideas out of which, the Best will be funded. This will happen after the Launch of the "Creating over 1 million Entrepreneurs initiative" on 5th August 2016. This initiative is basically aimed to Create Jobs to the youth.

WHY "CREATE 1 MILLION ENTREPRENEURS BY 2035 INITIATIVE"
"Unemployment tune"has become a theme song for so many youth over the years." laments George. Calling to "Serikali saidia" has become the order of the day, Observes George Wachiuri. George notes that the huge amount of Time and Energy spent by most of us complaining, murmuring, lamenting about lack of jobs is enough to create jobs for 1, 2, or even 5 people per person. George explains that the purpose of this initiative is to create jobs for the youth.

WHY THE PASSION & DRIVE?
Optiven Group exists to socially and economicallyEmpower and Transform the Society. "We cannot do this if our youth are unemployed." Advises George. Right now, Kenya stands at 40% Unemployment level, out of which 70% are the youth. What happens to the many, angry and bitter unemployed youth? George says that Most of them indulge in criminal activities which endanger the society. George also observes that if every person create5 jobs, we would be able create over 5 million jobs in Africa. Yes, we all heard that very well.

HOW DO WE CREATE OVER 1 MILLION ENTREPRENEURS IN 20 YEARS?

George explains that this initiative will be done through Mentorship programs, Trainings, Talkshows, PublicSpeaking, injecting the above mentioned seed capital to fund the Best ideas, influencing policy change in government where we will charge them to relook at our education system to match the society's needs , Partnershipsamong others. Optiven Foundation is calling on to like-minded people to come onboard and partner with them in curbing the Unemployment "song" in Kenya, once and for all.

AND HOW REALISTIC IS THIS?
"I can see it in the horizon. Ican see over 1 million Entrepreneurs in a span of 20 years. That is the power and mystery of a vision" Says George.

WHERE IS OUR STARTING POINT?
"I will go without salary for 3months. This is our starting capital. "Explains George. "We will also work with funddrives, Partnerships,KEPSA (Who will help us get these youths), Ministry of Youth (Devolution), Ministry of Industrialization and Enterprise and Business consultants who are willing to offer these consultancy on a voluntary Basis "Continues George. George further states that the Winners will be incubated for 3 months, as they undergo mentorship and trainings before they are released to go out and venture in these Businesses.

WHAT'S NEXT AFTER THIS?
George explains that the SME sector contributes over 25% GDP in any economy. "With this Initiative by Optiven Foundation rolling, we plan to increase this to 30%" Asserts George. Let's meet in 5th in August as we launch this initiative "Creating over 1 million Entrepreneurs by 2035". And this is just the beginning......
