Africa’s #1 online marketplace, Kaymu, is partnering with local universities and learning institutions to educate and encourage youth on the benefits of starting their own e-commerce businesses. E-commerce is still a new concept in Kenya, and motivating youth to take an active role in developing online businesses is necessary for the growth of the country’s e-commerce sector. As the country’s leading online marketplace, Kaymu offers entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to start buying and selling online with little up-front investment and the company is eager to work with young entrepreneurs to help them capitalize on this business opportunity.
A dedicated Kaymu team will be providing tutorials, workshops, and mentoring sessions to help young entrepreneurs on the operations, benefits, and even challenges of starting an online business. Regional Institute of Business management student program coordinator Mr. Nduilu says “We are excited to learn and be part of Kaymu. This program will help our students develop their entrepreneurial skills away from the classroom and gain experience in the real business world.”
With a wide range of items selling on Kaymu.co.ke, any young entrepreneur can sign up for an account and start selling their products through Kaymu. Product categories available on the website include smartphones, computers, fashion and clothing, home appliances, footwear and accessories.
Kenya’s e-commerce industry is expanding and Kaymu’s presence in the country is helping the rapid growth of online shopping in Kenya. It provides consumers with a convenient and easy-to-use online shopping platform which allows them to shop for various items from the comfort of their home.
