Join the Largest Gathering of Social Innovators in Africa for a two-day conference with fantastic opportunities to network, learn, and gain valuable insights into the world of social entrepreneurship and impact.
10 years ago, LEAP Africa found an existent gap in the entrepreneurial capacity of young change-makers to build sustainable enterprises and decided to accept responsibility for corrective action. Whereas young Africans have been largely labeled as unproductive and lazy in some cases, seeking immediate gratification, we have enjoyed the privilege of engaging in incredible solutions built by African innovators addressing real problems within their communities. To LEAP Africa, this growing minority represented (and still represents) the future of Africa – a transformed continent through transformative leaders.
What To Expect
Young innovators were given the platform to showcase their solutions while they learned valuable skills required to scale their enterprises. The Social Innovators Program is a platform that has remained committed to building the capacity of early to mid-stage entrepreneurs whose focus is largely social impact. The program honors young change-makers by equipping and empowering them with the necessary skills and resources for establishing long-term social enterprises. The initiatives cover various aspects of the society, such as:
- Youth Empowerment
- Science & Technology
- Human Rights
- And more…
In 2023, it will be celebrating 10 Years of Impact with 276 innovators from 14 countries trained and connected to investment opportunities allowing them to raise approximately $7 million in grants and revenue while creating jobs for over 400 unemployed persons. This landmark achievement only challenges the team and organization (including the entire ecosystem) to expand the frontiers of African innovation and impact investing in ensuring a sustainable Africa is delivered to future generations.
The Social Innovators Programme & Award is the pioneer gathering of leaders from the private and public sector, civil society organizations and development community to find innovative sustainable solutions to Africa’s key developmental challenges. As a platform to showcase solutions and innovations from all over Africa. Alongside the lines, we also have a number of side events:
- Networking events
- Workshop & Networking
Date: Oct 26 to Oct 27, 2023
