What support is needed to realize socially innovative and entrepreneurial ideas for a transforming Joburg?

Last week saw the launch of funding organisation UnLtd SA in South Africa. Michael Norton, founder of UnLtd, believes that all good things stem from a single thought, that single good idea, followed by the decision to take it forward.

Welcome to the first New Ideas for Africa session for 2010. Our focus for this session is on what happens after the decision to act on a good idea has been taken. We ask:

“what support is needed to realize socially innovative and entrepreneurial ideas for a transforming Joburg?”

A few of us in the NIfA network have joined hands to open The Hub Johannesburg this year. Its core business is to provide people who have enterprising ideas for the world with access to the resources, connections, knowledge, capital, experience and markets they need in order to thrive. See: http://www.the-hub.net

We invite all who are interested in addressing the above question to join us on Tuesday, 16th May at 18h30. The output of this dialogue will provide input for the Joburg model for Hub creation as well as for other similar initiatives.
