Keno Lucas II is the co-founder of The KENO (Kid Entrepreneurs Need Opportunities) Micro-Fund organization. The 12-year-old businessman founded the company with his mom Adrienne Lance Lucas.
Keno says of his venture, “Owning my own business has taught me to be smart about managing and growing my money. I don’t think you are ever too young for those lessons.”
The KENO Micro-Fund is a Georgia based non-profit that fosters, grows and nurtures businesses formed by young entrepreneurs. Lucas started his first Internet based business Coolkeno.com when he was only five years old. Since then, he has gone on to start a successful lawn care service and has produced and recorded a music single highlighting the importance of remembering Black Wall Street and the Tulsa Race Riots. Lucas founded The KENO Micro-Fund with his mother, Atlanta businesswoman Adrienne Lance Lucas to help other aspiring young entrepreneurs turn their bright ideas into successful enterprises. (Source)
