ALN Ventures mentor profile: Kris Senanu

Company: Access Kenya Group

Industries: Entertainment, Information Technology

Recently appointed Deputy CEO at Access Kenya Group, Kris is a self-professed insomniac and serial entrepreneur, with a particular interest in the Entrepreneurship, Entertainment and IT spaces. With all that he’s built in the last years, it’s no wonder he hasn’t often gotten more than five hours of sleep in a night!

In addition to his leadership role with AKG, he remains a driving force behind Blackrock Capital Investments, a fund he co-founded seven years ago. With its holdings spanning across industries, Blackrock has generally stayed true to Kris’ entrepreneurial spirit, while complementing his passion for Entertainment and IT. Today, its portfolio includes stakes in three of East Africa’s coolest nightlife properties: Club Tribeka, Skylux Lounge, and Club Natives.

A Ghanaian-born, Kenya-based businessman, Kris wears the mantle of pan-African entrepreneur with pride. So we’re lucky to count him among the people who support ALN Ventures!

If you’ve got an awesome business idea in the entertainment or IT spaces, apply today so we can connect you with some of Africa’s biggest success stories in the field. Entrepreneurs in other industries are, as always, every bit as welcome.
