Networking alumni unveil investment group
What started as a WhatsApp network group in July 2016 is now an investment company. The final launching plans are in place. The School of Hospitality and Tourism Alumni came together via a WhatsApp group administered by the Alumni Officer Mr Afubwa Musumi and the Dean of the School of Hospitality, Travel and Tourism, Ms Jane Kanjuru.
Several meetings later after proposals to create a business venture, the Houstouri Investment Group was founded. It is now live. The group will enable members to invest in land, hotel and tourism businesses.
Such is the kind of success associated with Mount Kenya University (MKU) School of Hospitality, Travel and Tourism, reflecting the passionate call by MKU founder Prof Simon Gicharu that the university’s alumni must endeavour to be job creators.
