In-Country Restitution Workshop
Social Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Development in Sub-Saharan Africa:
Lessons Learned from Business Incubation in Cameroon

The 27th August 2021 | 09-13h at Hotel Mansel, Yaounde


1. Background

The Nkafu Policy Institute, a Think tank at the Denis and Lenora Foretia Foundation, in partnership with organisations in Ghana and Burkina Faso, is implementing a two (2) years project. Funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), this project is entitled: “Social Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Development in Sub-Saharan Africa: Lessons learned from business incubation in Cameroon, Burkina Faso, and Ghana”. Its main objective is to map the business incubation practices in these countries and see how these contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 4, 5, 8, 9, and 13 and therefore promote social entrepreneurship. Following the in-country workshop held on 5th May 2021, during which the draft data collection tools were presented to different stakeholders of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, five data collection tools were finalised for business support structures, ecosystem enablers, capital providers, social entrepreneurs and beneficiaries of social enterprises. After collecting data from business support structures, it is deemed necessary to restitute the findings and gather feedback to improve on the results.
