Meet Liz Wanyoike The Founder of NIBS College

Liz Wanyoike.

Kenyan Entrepreneur and founder of the Nairobi Institute of Business Studies (NIBS) Technical College, Liz Muthoni Wanyoike, is a woman who has braced all odd in business to emerge as one of the top female business moguls the country has come to know.

Her story with NIBS started back in 1999 when she ventured into the college business, taking advantage of the fact that Kenyan Universities at the time did not offer a wide array of diploma courses to students countrywide.

Lizzie kicked off her business on a leased property and started off admitting students and as time passed she got an overwhelming number of students. She sold her business on the fact that she insisted on teaching quality and hands on experience to her students, something that most employers took note off and started recommending her to other clientele.

As business thrived, Lizzie's Landlord became jealous of her enterprise and decided to kick her out going against a lease they had signed on the college's premises. The case led to a law suit where lizzie emerged victorious and in turn marshalled her savings to buy land elsewhere where she settled on a plot along Thika Road where she then set the now well established NIBS Technical College.

Despite her success in business, Lizzie's personal life has also been one that came with ups and down. The Kahuhia Girls Alumni has narrated before of how she got pregnant at an early marriage and how she parted ways with her then husband with only a suitcase and her belongings to a point she had to sell her first property, which was a school, throwing her into depression at the time.
