Promoting socially and environmentally sustainable social enterprise

Funding Windows

Agriculture Thematic Funding Window
In 2015 EfD opened the Agriculture Thematic Funding Window to identify and support social enterprises working in agriculture that require grant funding to initiate or scale up their operations.

After review and consideration of the applicants in the initial phase, the techfortrade Open Book Trading initiative was selected as a grantee (see here).

The funding window remains open to applications from agricultural initiatives that utilise technology to improve agricultural productivity, where grant funding could be used to scale up their operations. Please get in touch with us at info@enterprisefordevelopment.org.

 

MNCH Competition
In 2015 EfD ran a competition to identify social enterprise solutions for improving maternal and newborn child health in sub-Saharan Africa. EfD was delighted with the high standard of responses to the competition, and having reviewed all of the funding applications received, selected Jacaranda Health as the overall winner (see here).

EfD is still open to accepting applications from social enterprises working to improve maternal and newborn child health in sub-Saharan Africa, and where grant funding could be used to scale up their operations.
