My Article on Our Funding Model and Taking Risks in Inside:Out

This quarter’s edition of the Bertha Centre for Innovation (University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business)’s magazine Inside:Out explores Financing for social ventures and would make great reading for many of our followers.  On page 14-17, I explore our approach to funding, looking at why we take risks, with small grants, across a diverse portfolio and why it’s worth it.  Lots of our grantees and other partners and successful projects are mentioned, including Efiko, Co-Creation Hub, iWatch Live, BudgIT, Wecycler, Odekro, Lungisa, People’s Assembly, Omidyar Network and an interview with Su Kahumbu from iCow.  You can see the magazine as a slide show below or read a PDF version here.
