Victor Ochieng was born and raised in Kibera. While growing up, Ochieng has always loved playing football. However, like most of his peers, access to training gears and footballs was a challenge.
After seeing how lack of footballs and other training gears were causing to miss winning various tournaments and other other opportunities like getting scholarships and join a football academy, Ochieng was inspired to start SportBase Ventures. Since he did not have enough skills on how to make leather products, Ochieng first went for training in Mombasa and after 1 year of training he was ready to start the business.
