Free 2-days Virtual social enterprise workshop

Social enterprises are known to use business means such as trading products and services to meet and sustain their efforts at centrally addressing social problems. With the myriad of social-economic issues facing Africa pre and post pandemic and the increasing need for self-sufficiency due to dwindling charitable funds, new and existing social enterprises need to develop innovative ways to generate income to support and sustain their activities. How can this be done and how can African social enterprises address social issues in a commercially sustainable and scalable way?

In this workshop, we will focus on the enterprise in the ‘social enterprise’ concept and explore how social enterprises can innovate the commercial aspects of their organizations to achieve social goals in Africa. Participants will benefit from a rich panel of speakers who will be sharing their knowledge and experiences on running, supporting and researching social enterprises and sustainable business models in key sectors such as health, education, waste management and circular economy, energy, and agriculture. Experts will also be coordinating a workshop on business model innovation for sustainability where participants will be guided on developing new or enhancing existing sustainable business models to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Do you self-identify as a social entrepreneur or are you interested in starting a social enterprise in any country in Africa? Do you have a core social and/or environmental purpose alongside commercial objectives? Are you interested in sustainable business models for social enterprises in an African context? Then this workshop is for you. Register to attend below.
