National Roadshows

What the Impact Community Says

We recently hosted four exciting roadshow launch events in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Gqeberha. The main aim of the national roadshow was to uncover and understand the specific needs of social impact organisations in each region. We asked social entrepreneurs what support they need.

Cape Town

On 7 May we hosted our first National Roadshow event in the Western Cape at The Clothing Bank in Thornton, Cape Town. The Clothing Bank is a well-known social enterprise that trains and supports unemployed mothers to start their own businesses. We asked the Cape Town Impact Community what kind of support they needed on the ground to enhance their impact, and this is what they said;

Relationships and networks are KEY in the lonely journey of a social entrepreneur, so it would be great if we could get more ways to collaborate, connect and network in the Community of Practice (CoP).”

Masifunde is a proactive youth development organisation that helps to mould future role models in Walmer Township. We asked the Gqeberha Impact Community what kind of support they needed on the ground to enhance their impact, and this is what they said;

It would be lovely if CoP members could get connected to funding opportunities.”

Johannesburg

We hosted our third National Roadshow event in Gauteng on 12 May at Workshop17 in Sandton, Johannesburg. We also had the opportunity to ask the Joburg Impact Community what kind of support they needed on the ground to enhance their impact, and this is what they said;

“As social impact business owners, sometimes you we wish you had a mentor or someone who is well acquainted with the operations of a social enterprise and ready to give you some guidance. It would be great if we could get some business coaching and mentorship support as part of the CoP.”
