The study objectives were to establish how new venture creation and growth training affected the strategy implementation of enterprises operating in Nakuru County and to establish how innovation management training affected strategy implementation of enterprises operating in Nakuru County. This study adopted a descriptive research design based on a survey strategy. Data was collected using structured questionnaires from selected business enterprises in Nakuru County and analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Social entrepreneurship training was found to have a significant effect on strategy implementation; entrepreneurs dedicated their resources to address these social needs mostly through CSR programs.
