Meet the two lionesses at the KCB Lion’s Den

Have you applied for the KCB Lion’s Den yet?

The Lion’s Den is a show powered by KCB Bank where aspiring entrepreneurs get to pitch their business ideas and products to a panel of Kenyan business moguls who have the cash and the know-how it takes to succeed.

Kenya’s most daring entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to step into the den to convince the Lions that their business is worth investing in and offer a share of their company in return.

The Lions have pledged millions of shillings of their own personal wealth towards investing in ground-breaking ideas through Lions’ Den, powered by KCB Bank, the largest commercial bank in East Africa.

Among the business moguls are Olive Gachara and Wandia Gichuru, two ladies we like to call lionesses.
