If you plan to start a business within the next few months or are already in the early stages of your entrepreneurship journey, you’ve come to the right place. Starting your own business can be extremely rewarding and exciting. But the risks of failure also linger in the shadows. A lot can go wrong, and they often do when you ignore crucial fundamentals at the onset.
It is no wonder, then, that nearly 46% of Kenya’s SMEs close within a year of founding and a further 70% don’t make it to the third year. Some contributing factors include lack of marketing, poor planning, and low sales among many others.
