The SEED Africa Symposium is the largest gathering on social and eco entrepreneurship in Africa, and is supported by a variety of partners. The Symposium takes a unique approach that emphasizes cross-sector collaboration and peer-learning. It brings together entrepreneurs, business leaders, policy makers, the community of finance and practitioners to co-create, and build together an effective ecosystem for social and eco-enterprises.
2015 is a special year for SEED, in that it marks the 10th Anniversary of the SEED Awards. The Symposium will be the opportunity to share insights from more than 10 years of experience in promoting social and eco-entrepreneurship.
The SEED Africa Symposium is a unique forum for businesses, policy makers, civil society and support institutions to share their knowledge and experience, explore partnerships, and develop solutions to stimulate the growth of social and green entrepreneurship.
The event is organised by SEED – a global partnership founded by UNEP, UNDP and IUCN – in cooperation with a variety of international and local partners.
This year the Symposium will convene around 500 delegates under the theme “Building Bridges for Impact: Green and Inclusive Growth through Entrepreneurship.” Together we will examine emerging trends in the green and entrepreneurship space, and look into ways to strengthen cross-sector collaboration to build an effective ecosystem which supports and amplifies the impact of social and eco enterprises.
Some of the Highlights of the SEED Africa Symposium 2015 include:
- High-level panel discussions, inspiring keynotes, and a series of hands-on workshops centered around innovative business models and collaborations that can drive the change to sustainable development
- The South-South Exhibition, which will showcase more than 50 inspiring social and eco-enterprises
- SEED International Awards Ceremony where we will celebrate the 2015 SEED Award Winners – innovative start-up enterprises that offer sustainable and scalable solutions to social and environmental challenges
