The Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Capetown in South Africa is conducting a survey on the funding needs of social enterprises in Africa.

Social enterprises in Africa can participate in the survey to generate a clearer picture of their financing needs. The results will be used to promote African social enterprises, and to generate insights for future research. Find the full story and survey details here.

As a bonus, enterprises that contributed to the survey will have the opportunity to be featured on ImpactSpace. ImpactSpace, a sister site of ImpactAlpha, is an open data and resource platform powering the global impact market, which aims to accelerate impact investing by making information about the impact market available to everyone.
