Gicharu has built quite an impressive enterprise in one of Kenya's emerging innovative segments - private higher education. Mt. Kenya University for example was among the pioneers who acquired or leased sky scrapers in downtown Nairobi to serve as an urban campus. The outcome has been a rejuvenated and vibrant downtown well into the evening and an opportunity for employees with busy schedules to work towards graduate degrees. I like his answer on entrepreneurship in the interview:
"Everyone is telling the African youth to become job creators and start their own businesses. Is entrepreneurship really for all?
Entrepreneurship is not about starting a business. It is about looking for opportunities as opposed to sitting at home and asking for jobs."
