WHAT WE DO
We offer a 6 month long incubation program based on an immersive social business experience.
The social business entrepreneurs receive hours of training and participate in exposure visits to see how existing businesses function. Our intensive training and mentoring is facilitated by seasoned Social Business Experts, Academicians, Entrepreneurs and Social Investors. We are a community of entrepreneurs where everyone is willing to equip you with the tips and tricks to build your product or service and nail an early stage investment deal. This entire development process culminates into a public event where you are invited to pitch your social business in front of an audience of veteran entrepreneurs, top executives, investors and stakeholders. Top entrepreneurs are then provided with seed capital to launch their businesses. This is not the end, just the beginning; where we work together to achieve our mission to end poverty.
Often we devise specialised business incubation programs with partners where we focus on specific sectors or geographies.
