Design. Prototype. Scale. Impact

The platform is an eco-system for social impact-led businesses in communities of African countries, supporting them to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

We collaborate widely across the social impact ecosystem to catalyse initiatives that build capacity of changemakers, connect community-based innovators with opportunities to design, prototype, scale, impact – and grow as leaders.

Every changemaker or aspiring social impact entrepreneur joining our platform, starts their journey with a four-day immersive workshop: Disruptive Design for Social Impact. This is an immersive, peer-to-peer changemakers development program, that brings together committed and compassionate individuals, aiming to have a better understanding of themselves, and desirous of activating positive impact in their communities, and the world.

The program is designed such that it enables delegates to make a difference in the communities they live in, positively impacting society and the natural environment.

What We Offer

At the heart of our operation is collaboration. Humans thrive through collaboration and not competition. We collaborate with purpose driven, committed individuals and organisations globally, to accelerate social change and enable sustainable impact in Africa.

Our Approach

In the early phases of the program, the entrepreneurial curriculum is built on the primary learnings that come from delegates’ work, life experience, interacting with one another, and through the actions that they take during and after they’ve designed the community-based projects and go on to implement them.

The two latter phases is a module-by-module online curriculum: The Start-Up Course aims to help entrepreneurs at the ‘idea or prototype stage’ make informed, practical decisions to develop their concept/research/prototype, launch their venture, and start generating income. The aim of the final phase is to improve the investment case of the social-impact business.
