Summary/Abstract:

Maina Waweru, CEO of LawAfrica, and Katarina Juma, Chief of Operations, were faced with a dilemma. Their new online business had not generated any revenue because their developer contracted to do the job had failed to deliver the website on time. Moreover, the two budding entrepreneurs, Maina and Katarina, were on the verge of resigning from their lucrative careers to embark on running their own business.
