We do this by seeking, profiling, and investing in emerging Impact Entrepreneurs. We then support them and open doors for them in South Africa and through our membership of the Global Social Entrepreneurs Network (GSEN). As part of the more than 40 countries in the UnLtd family worldwide (UnLtd India, UnLtd UK, UnLtd Thailand, etc.), we bring together best practice globally and local, tailored relevance to our impact entrepreneurs. These individuals are transforming their communities in South Africa by tackling social problems, improving people's life chances, or delivering environmental sustainability. They are creating effective and enterprising solutions with a measurable impact – and they go on to create jobs.
