The Entrepreneur Of the Year -Mulbah K. Yorgbor Jr.

We celebrate our honoree for lifting the bar so high and recognize Mulbah K. Yorgbor Jr., a young Liberian in Liberia not America.

Mr. Yorgbor, knowing the value of hard work and the reward it brings, embraced the challenge and transformed himself into the businessman he is today.

He owns and operates two entertainment centers; Renaissance Headquarters in Duport Road and Renaissance Phoenix in Barnesville

In 2018 while attending a meeting at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London, Mulbah was terminated from his role as Director of Corporate Communications and Stakeholders Engagement of the Liberia Maritme Authority by the CDC-led Government.

He swiftly returned to Liberia and on August 24, 2018 began what is now arguably Liberia’s leading and fastest growing entertainment company, The Renaissance Sports Bar and Grill.

As if the CDC Government wasn’t tired persecuting him, they would harass his business from time to time as far as seizing his music equipment.

The building housing his business was hurriedly demolished in the name of road construction even though that construction would happen two years later.

He moved to a new location and on November 29, 2023 opened a second branch of his business in the Barnersville Township.

He currently employs more than 50 young People directly and more than a few hundred people indirectly benefit from ancillary services around his operation areas.

Mulbah’s story is one of resilience, commitment, focus, determination, courage and fortitude.
