In May, the E Squared Social Entrepreneurship team held a cocktail evening in Cape Town. It was a chance to connect with our social innovators in the Mother City and for them to network amongst themselves, meet newcomers to the portfolio, and meet some talent from the Allan Gray Philanthropy Group.
The following day E Squared held a Business Model & Value Proposition Canvas workshop for current investees in the CBD, facilitated by Dennis Mhangami. Both events created amazing learning opportunities for the various non-profits we support and a chance to present and analyse their models amidst peers.
A big thank you to Dennis for facilitating the session and to all those that attended – Just Grace, Word of Mouth, Zisebenze, Afrika Tikkun, WeThinkCode, and Aspire Youth – who are always jumping at opportunities to grow. It was an insightful session and a valuable opportunity to network with and learn from other impactful social enterprises.
