Today many commentators observe that Kenya is well placed to serve as an engine of growth in East Africa after years of economic stagnation due to poor management and uneven commitment to tackling corruption. Recent economic development show resumed growth since 2001 has inspired a degree of certainty and confidence.
Thus the creation of 70.71 Group which we believe is well placed to capitalize on this newly found inertia. 70.71 Group is a unique brand that is diversified into different sectors through investment and strategic collaborations.
Our initial implementation phase begins in Kenya due to three factors:
Emerging Market Century (book by Antoine van Agtmael) informs us that while our attention was focused on the "new economy" a few years ago, "new economies" quietly stole the show. We are in the midst of the greatest shift in the global economy since the Industrial Revolution. This time, the economic epicenter is shifting away from the developed world to emerging markets in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.
The stakeholders in the various companies within 70.71 Group are innovative leaders in their areas of expertise; they also give a unique opportunity to have parallel investment vehicles in their core areas. To date we have two projects under registered subsidiary companies in the transportation and investment sectors. One of our core competencies, architectural design and facilitation, remains a key investment in the near future which builds upon the foundation created by Studio 70.71. These synergies will help diversify into other components in future
As Chairman, I am confident that 70.71 Group is well placed for success based upon the niche markets identified and the solid team of professionals in each of the sectors. 70.71 Group's vision inspired by contemporaries like Warren Buffet, Jim Rogers, Geroge Soros, Robert Johnson and Richard Branson for their endeavors in business.
