How Equity Bank chief is creating an ‘accidental’ army of capitalists

What you need to know:

  • The invitation said that the congress would be attended by “over five thousand scholars drawn from the Equity Bank university sponsorship programme and the ‘Wings to Fly’ programme”.
  • The university programme benefits the top-performing students in the university entry exams. Pretty straightforward.
  • Looking ahead, if these Equity Foundation programmes continue for just another 25 years and remain at the same level, they will have nearly 50,000 of what I would call “Equityzens”.
  • What does this mean? If Mwangi were called by his maker to start a bank in the Hereafter in 25 years, and all Equityzens turned up for his burial, he would have the biggest funeral in East Africa.

On Tuesday, I was one of the guest speakers at the Third Annual Equity Group Foundation Education and Leadership Congress at the Kenyatta University campus.
