How Optiven Transforms Real Estate and Community Development

George Wachiuri, the Chief Executive and Founder of Optiven, delivered a powerful message of inspiration and empowerment at the recently concluded Global Leadership Summit 2023 held in Nairobi.

Optiven has emerged as a leading brand in the region, renowned for its strategic business units (SBUs) that span across real estate, housing, water services, and hospitality.

With entities like Optiven Real Estate, Optiven Homes, and Optiven Water, the firm has established a robust presence in the property sector.

Additionally, its foray into hospitality through GMC Place in Kitengela and food franchises such as Eagle Peak Spur further underscores its diverse portfolio.

Beyond its commercial ventures, Optiven’s philanthropic arm, the Optiven Foundation, has made significant strides in improving the social well-being of countless Kenyans.
