Launch of ANDE SA’s Impact Management Learning Lab

Workshop17 Watershed, Cape Town

12 April 2019



In partnership with Social Value UK, ANDE SA is excited to announce the launch of the “Impact Management for the South African social and creative enterprises sectors” project, with support from the British Council's Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE) Fund.


Building on the momentum of the ANDE SA Metrics Learning Lab, the project aims to accelerate Impact Management in South Africa for any intermediaries supporting SGBs who want to learn how to measure their impact and in turn support their entrepreneurs to use data to improve their decisions and performance. The project also invites intermediaries who support social and creative enterprises to attend, as the lab will explore special topics and opportunities in these sectors.  




Introducing ANDE SA's Impact Management (IM) Learning Lab

The IM Learning Lab is a community of practice for intermediaries in South Africa who want to share best practice and discuss issues relating to Impact Management and work towards a more common language of support for social and creative enterprises. The Learning Lab will meet quarterly in either Johannesburg or Cape Town and will cover exciting topics and offer peer-to-peer knowledge sharing opportunities.



Your're invited to join ANDE SA, SVUK and an expert design thinking facilitator to discuss the objectives of the learning lab and benefits and challenges relating to Impact Management.  


When: 12 April 2019
Time: 09h00 – 12h00 SAST (followed by lunch)
Where: Workshop 17 Watershed, 17 Dock Road, V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa, 8002
