The Foundation

The Mbugua Rosemary Foundation selects and supports a group of extraordinary emerging-market entrepreneurs who have the potential to transform industries, communities, and even countries. The Foundation will select candidates biannually to their entrepreneurial mentorship programme set up in honour of Mbugua Mwangi and Rosemary Wahito, both young successful entrepreneurs, who inspired the formation of the Foundation.

Get Involved

Are you interested in becoming a part of the Mbugua Rosemary Foundation Network?
We’d love you to be involved – this is how
Among the reasons why 90% of start-ups fail is because of poor management as a result of lack of knowledge. Through your donation, MRF builds the capacity of young Kenyans to give them the skills to build and grow a successful business. Here is your chance to play a role in the development of youth in our society.
MRF Fellows are provided the tools and skills to effectively set-up, run and scale up their start-up enterprises. They are an energetic innovative group of young people looking to make a change in their communities.Invest in the next generation of entrepreneurs by way of money or resources to help them grow.
Every young entrepreneur needs a good mentor. Good advice can be just as crucial as funding in the early stages of an enterprise. If you are in a position to share the skills you have learned, you should give back by becoming a mentor. All are welcome to be part of our growing mentor-ship team.
There are many ways of helping start-ups grow nad scale quickly. Partnership is one way we encourage our MRF fellows to persue. We welcome company’s and organisations to partner and help our fellows reach their potential of growing their start-ups to sustainable entities that are growing the economy.

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation and hard work.
