Impact Makers and Creators is an ambitious programme, supported by the British Council, that will work with 120 Ideation-and Growth-Stage social and creative entrepreneurs in Cape Town and Johannesburg and support them in building their social and creative businesses, make their impact sustainable and reach wider communities and beneficiaries through their work. The 6-module programme delivery partners are the Social Enterprise Academy (module 1 & 2) and Seed Academy (Module 4,5,6) including one-on-one mentorship sessions.
