    OUR RECENT WORK

    CREATING SOCIAL IMPACT AT SCALE

    Client: Oxfam

    Delivered a presentation about social innovation in Africa to Oxfam's global senior leadership team. Our goal was to generate a discussion and new thinking around leveraging technology to create social impact at scale in Africa as well as providing case-studies on successful strategies that have been implemented.

     

    "The feedback that I had from so many of my colleagues was about how they were challenged, inspired and invigorated by the session and your inputs. I kept on having colleagues come to me at different times afterwards who were struck by the presentations and group work. It really set the tone and created a joint sense of urgency around collaboration, innovation and scale. "

    AGRITECH IDEATION LAB

    Clients: WeFarm, Zazu

    Designed & facilitated a workshop bringing together a diverse group of innovators to generate new ideas to address specific challenges faced by agri-tech social enterprises WeFarm and Zazu in scaling their technology solutions in Africa. We were able to help WeFarm and Zazu crowdsource new ideas to address their challenges as well as make useful connections to further their work.

     

    "We really enjoyed the session and came out with loads of new ideas."
