The BLAZE BYOB road to success for the youth is back and this time round they have kicked it up a notch. It’s going to be bigger this year…that’s just my opinion though because I believe the mentors are amazing and the first regional summit is in Meru.

The first season of BLAZE Be Your Own Boss saw 43% of Kenyan youth join the platform and 44,000 young people under the age of 26 attend the countrywide summits, the second season aims to inspire Kenyan youth through inspiration and guidance by some of Kenya’s most successful young entrepreneurs.

“We are glad that the first edition of BLAZE BYOB was a success. We now want to build on the learnings we picked to improve the second edition. Key among the changes, we will be introducing three new areas that will help participants in building successful businesses and appreciating the need to give back to the society,” said Sylvia Mulinge, Director -Consumer Business, Safaricom.

The theme 

This year’s theme for the BLAZE BYOB is Greatness Requires Internal Toughness (G.R.I.T), and  it will focus on three key areas; to mentor and train youth by giving them the tools required to be successful at BYOB Creation Camps.

Secondly, to inspire youth to follow their passions and introduce them to relatable mentors who can talk about their personal journeys and how they found G.R.I.T to be successful at BLAZE BYOB Summits and lastly BYOB will introduce BLAZE CSR Fridays, a session aimed at teaching the youth to give back to the society.
