Corporate entrepreneurship responsibility has finally caught up with us as we witness greater commitment from the private sector towards the empowerment and support of start up and small businesses, particularly within their respective local landscape.

Whether this is due to corporate social responsibility goals within the local community, or due a vision of the SME sector being vital to a healthy economy, corporate contribution plays a critical role in this equation.

In our work we have accepted engagements with corporate, with government, and with the NGO/non-profit clients, designing and/or delivering a range of entrepreneurship development activities, which include:

Custom Entrepreneurship Programs & Competitions;

Developing Acceleration Programs & Advising on Acceleration Models;

Angel Roundtables & Angel Training:

Entrepreneurship Training and Learning Tracks:

Demo days/ Hackathons;

Our commitment to this space has resulted in Imtiaz co-founding three regional, social/non profit, platforms supporting young talent through the vehicle of a mobile challenge endorsed and hosted by the Mobile World Congress every year.

This is an area that is growing in importance because everyone is realizing that innovation is multi-faceted in that it affects the organisation, the people, and the output – whether it be processes, products or ideas. It’s a viral state that impacts an organisation at its very core, and therefore its chances of success. Our work in Innovation includes the following:
