Business and the Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Success at Scale at London

October 27, 2015 from 5:30pm to 7pm
With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) now adopted, attention is shifting to how they will be delivered. While responsibility will ultimately fall to government, leaders across sectors now recognise that the challenges are too great and too systemic for any one of them to tackle alone, and that business’ contribution will be pivotal.  There is growing appreciation that business is well positioned to drive sustainable and inclusive…See More

"It would seem, the most immediate problem/question is how do social entrepreneurs even begin to discuss ways of working together with big business given this asymmetrical relationship. Experience has shown that it is almost impossible to even get…"

I am a social entrepreneur, I am an academic
Website:

About my work:
Founded friendafrica.com a crowd funding and Buy Social Discount site that channels 80% of its profits towards funding family/community projects that enable the weakest in rural Africa to lift themselves out of poverty.
Other Topics on my radar:
Contributing to Africa's Development through social entrepreneurship: We believe that development in Africa lies with the creation of agents of change within the rural poor on the continent. Because rural Africans constitute approximately 70% of the African population, Africa’s full potential for development can only be fully realized through their inclusion into the mainstream economies.

We have created a crowd funding platform friendafrica.com, to make it easier for as many people as possible to provide the weakest in rural Africa with tools to work their own way out of poverty, increasing the likelihood that the new SDG’s are met.
We help crowd fund anti-poverty projects for rural Africa and invite in-kind support from everyone willing to engage rural communities in Africa to help deliver change.friendafrica.com
