The Business Conversation is a monthly forum created by the Business Lounge where young entrepreneurs and business people can interact with various personalities who have had a track record of exceptional leadership, management and entrepreneurial experiences.

Mr. Henry Njoroge, the founder and CEO of Xtranet is the guest speaker for the next forum scheduled for 6th/Feb/2013 whose theme is: ICT as an enabling pillar for investment in Africa.

Mr. Henry Njoroge works to expand the information technology sector of Kenya and currently runs Xtranet Communications, which aims to capture the growing opportunities in value added services arising out of the rapid growth of mobile telephony penetration and the coming of the fiber optic cable of East Africa Coast this year. He hopes to provide employment to hundreds of jobless youth in Kenya through initiatives such as call centers, outsourcing and business process engineering.

He is also a trustee of the Kenya Youth Business Trust, a non-profit organization affiliated to Youth Business International, whose aim is to empower the poorest of the poor through entrepreneurship by giving microloans. Mr. Njoroge was previously CEO of Openview Business Systems and has also established and expanded several other IT companies in Kenya, Angola, Zambia and Uganda. With each company, he has worked to redefine ICT, the Internet, and telecommunications in Africa, making technology more widely accessible.

    This is the same guy who conned Access Kenya Group to buy Open View Business only to Incorporate another company during the handover, poaching all the technical staff, major clients and leaving AKG with a shell of Open View Business.
    Wouldn’t recommend anyone to see a this man, even for free. Unless he is being arrested :-)
