Speaking at the event, Edwin H. Dande, C.E.O of Cytonn, noted that, “There are four key pillars that guide one during the entrepreneurial journey. These are: identifying the pain point in the society and having a solution for it, having a good strategy in place, building a good team that will help you execute the strategy, and finally, executing the strategy.” He went on to highlight companies like Equity Bank and Uber, which used these four pillars to attain the success they have today.

Edwin also explained that Cytonn Investments used the four pillars of entrepreneurship to get to where it is today. He noted that most entrepreneurs lose hope along the way because of going into the journey with a mindset of making money overnight.
