Donor Spotlight - Kirimania Murithi

Kirimania is an avid entrepreneur with a focus in emerging markets, specifically Kenya. He is the president & CEO of Nairobi Capital, Inc., a company whose main operations are in Kenya in business finance and real estate development. VMS thanks Kirimania for his generosity to MIT and the MIT Venture Mentoring Service.


The launch of my company, Nairobi Capital, Inc., was fine-tuned at VMS. VMS provided me with a platform to develop the initial idea into a credible business proposal from which I was able to raise money and start the business. We have been in operation for the last 7 years, registering steady growth and being profitable every year. More important is the positive impact that we are making in Kenya by enhancing entrepreneurship and providing employment. Thus, it is no surprise that when aspiring young MIT entrepreneurs approach me for advice, I always refer them to VMS as a starting point.
