What we offer
WE BUILD A SUPPORT ECOSYSTEM
Leaving the beaten track to focus on solving a pressing social need can be a lonely journey: many skills and support networks are no longer relevant, your friends and family don’t understand your situation, you feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the issue you are trying to impact. Conventional business support services don’t talk your language, but nor do most social charities. And sometimes your personal needs seem insignificant in the context of the wider reality so you forget to invest in yourself and your health with all the dire consequences.
WE INCUBATE CHANGEMAKERS IN ANY SECTOR, WITH ANY MODEL
The ventures run by our fellows are registered as social enterprises, nonprofits or hybrid entities across the for-profit/nonprofit continuum. They operate in diverse sectors: livelihoods, education, health, women empowerment, agriculture, environment, arts.
We support entrepreneurs at various stages along the lifecycle of their venture. Level 1 fellows are at the very initial stages of their project: they are looking to validate their model by piloting their idea on the ground. Level 2 fellows are running an established venture with a track record, income streams and building a full-fledged team.
