This calls for change in perception in governance, hence innovation and entrepreneurship is mandatory through embracing new ideas, new ways of doing things and technology towards unlocking the county potential for sustainable devolution. This paper therefore discusses how innovation and entrepreneurship can support county governments in improving governance and utility of available resource in serving people for effective devolution. Innovation and entrepreneurship promotes institutional competiveness and boosts development. Innovative ways would encourage entrepreneurship that matches the current global needs and ensures Kenyan counties met its obligation and can compete favourably with other nations.
