To provide a social enterprise incubation and acceleration programme that supports and scales innovative, social impact businesses that are solving some of South Africa’s pressing social and economic challenges through innovative, social impact business models. The 18-month programme follows a carefully designed and well-proven method that has delivered exceptional results across many business sectors.

“I have been touched by Fetola’s unique authenticity and deep commitment to uplifting South Africans. A wealth of innovation and support has been added from conceptualisation of the programme through to our current stage of execution and we see Fetola as our implementation partners as opposed to a service provider.”
