Man Crush Monday (MCM): Ken Njoroge

by Duke Magazine

Ken Njoroge is a Kenyan mobile commerce evangelist and career entrepreneur. He is a co-founder and the group CEO of Cellulant.  Ken had previously served as co-founder and Solution Design Director of 3Mice Interactive Media. The company grew from a two-man team to a leading web development firm in East Africa. 3Mice was later acquired by Africa Online, the largest Pan-African Internet Service Provider.

Ken’s undeterred pursuit of seeing Cellulant achieve its mission of building a world class, values-driven $1 billion business for Africa, by Africans, in Africa, has led the company from an idea sketched on a serviette in 2003 with his co-founder, Bolaji Akinboro, to a reputable payments company in Africa. Cellulant currently has more than 300 employees across 11 markets; servicing 34 countries in Africa. Over the past couple of years, Ken has invested time in training and advising the next generation of entrepreneurs, and contributing to the growth of the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Africa. In recognition of this, in 2017, Ken was selected as the first Sub-Saharan and Kenyan Global Endeavor Entrepreneur for his commitment to advancing an ecosystem of entrepreneurship in Africa. However, Ken was the winner of the 2019 Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award, an honor bestowed each year by the World Economic Forum, to identify and recognize the world’s leading social entrepreneurs.
