Getting Social Innovation to Work in Africa

Due to lack of information, many valuable ideas and businesses faced challenges when they tried to enter into Africa. Africa is a fragmented continent with 54 nations. Even within a country, different tribes share diverse cultural heritages. 

As the door-opener for European businesses and ideas coming to Africa, CIS has been working closely with private schools in Kenya for over 3 years. We believe that private schools are one of the best places for social innovation. Private schools operate as independent entities, while having an extremely tight knitted community. Encompassing students, teachers and parents, private schools resemble a mini-society – large enough to accommodate diverse ideas, yet small enough to deploy programs and evaluate the results. 

If you have an idea, or product that falls within CIS’s strategic pillars (agriculture, energy, leadership development), we are happy to help you access the African market! Talk to us now!
