Researching, Educating, Convening & Catalysing

For Social and Economic Change

Welcome

We are the first academic centre in Africa dedicated to advancing social innovation and entrepreneurship. It was established as a specialised centre at the UCT Graduate School of Business in late 2011, in partnership with the Bertha Foundation, that works with inspiring leaders who are catalysts for social and economic change, and human rights.


Researching, Educating, Convening & Catalysing is the core of what we do

Social innovation is the springboard to creating change

The Centre’s mission is to pursue social impact towards social justice in Africa, through educating, researching, convening and catalysing with a systems lens on social innovation. In collaboration with the GSB, the Centre has integrated social innovation into the business school curriculum, established a wide community of practitioners and awarded over R6-million in scholarships to students from across Africa.
