Nairobi Update – Nov 1st

Nairobi Update: Diamonds in the Rough
If one of us stumbled upon an uncut, unpolished diamond, we’d probably walk right by it. It would be just another pebble blending into the background.
The same thing happens to talented, entrepreneurial people in the slum neighborhoods of eastern Nairobi. They blend right into the masses of people trying to live in extremely harsh conditions.
At T-Ventures, we believe that multitudes of future business owners can be found in these challenging settings. Many of them are hungry for training, coaching, and some start-up capital to launch or expand their current operations. When these opportunities are provided, in combination with the Gospel, the impact on their lives and community is profound.

A Diamond Example: Judy attended an impromptu BAM workshop led by Josephine, Melissa, and Bruce back in June. She left the workshop convinced that she should work with her love of creating artificial flowers and ability […]

BAM Entrepreneurial Training – Oct ’14

BAM Entrepreneurial Training

At Transformational Ventures, we have created the BAM Entrepreneurial Training Association (BETA) and invite you to participate for free. This association is a community of business people using the material, continually improving it, and interacting with each other.
Please visit the web site and explore all BETA has to offer: www.beta-ventures.com

What is the BETA material?
Created by some amazing volunteers, the BETA material contains a complete set of lessons that T-Ventures is using to equip new and existing entrepreneurs for BAM work around the world. The BETA material provides training, case studies, and guidance for mentoring relationships that we have found necessary for providing a favorable foundation for starting a profitable Kingdom business. The BETA material targets the small and medium sized enterprises sector.
Most users of the BETA materials will probably be those who are training BAM entrepreneurs. However, a BAM entrepreneur may be able to utilize the material […]

The Gift of Business – Aug ’14

The Gift of Business
While in Kenya this past June, we were reminded of some very important truths.
One of these reminders came during a seminar on starting a business we led the first Sunday we were there. These seminars were offered to the members of the church who are in or interested in business. About forty-five men and women joined us for the seminar.
As we began to make our way through the curriculum, we were impressed by the interaction of the participants. They had many great ideas and thoughts and were quickly able to apply the curriculum’s principles to their business.
One particular section in the seminar stood out to us: differentiating your business. This can be a challenging concept to practically apply to your business, no matter how experienced you may be or what business you may have.
The students came up with many innovative to differentiate themselves. Frankly, we were […]

Kenya BAM Trip Highlights – July ’14

Kenya B4TE 2014
As we have arrived back from Kenya and had a chance to catch our breath, we have been able to reflect on our two weeks there and celebrate how God guided and provided for us. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to experience first- hand how the Lord is at work in Kenya — we were blown away by all that He is doing there!
The overarching goals for our B4TE (Business for Transformation Experience) were to listen, learn, and serve. The seven adults who formed the in-country team went with the intention of actively listening to Kenyan leaders and entrepreneurs about what is going well and what their challenges are, learning from what they have learned and are learning, and better understanding their context so we are able to more effectively serve alongside them, even as we return to the States. We give God […]
