Social & Inclusive Business Camp 2020

The Social & Inclusive Business Camp (SIBC) 2020 is calling for application from social entrepreneurs in Africa. This is an opportunity to scale up your impactful business and join an aspiring community.

The SIBC began in 2017, and since then, has supported nearly 150 entrepreneurs with a strong societal impact in Africa. They have provided support to entrepreneurs in their transition to scale-up. They help them measure their social performance and prepare them for fundraising.

It is committed first and foremost to supporting young entrepreneurs in this time of crisis by providing them with the necessary management and reflection tools. So, each entrepreneur who validates their application will thus have access to a Covid-19 business survival toolkit developed with AMI, a partner of the SIBC. They will be able to interact during a collaborative webinar, to access management tools on the AMI platform for 2 months and thus joining a community of highly skilled peers to support them during this uncertain period.
