Our B2B Pairing Trips
These trips are designed to cut across sectors creating an opportunity for you to meet challenged communities, promising innovators, experienced businesses and professionals. Through this meeting of minds, we can address issues that impact their well-being and explore potential partnerships, exchange skills and strategies.
The traditional charity model of beneficiaries and supporters is no longer fit nor sustainable, and neither is the structure where individual organizations act as intermediary between donor and beneficiary. As the saying goes, “You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime.” Invigorating Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) and supporting innovation driven start – ups either through exchange of ideas or impact investment plays a huge role in countering the problem of pervasive poverty.
The world is becoming increasingly smaller making our potential to make a difference conceivable and attainable. Technological advances are quickly bringing us to places we have never been before, changing the way any business operates and allowing small businesses to easily access resources that would otherwise have been too expensive. The rise of a socially conscious business community has also changed the dynamic between NGOs and Corporate organizations to one that is more collaborative, build on a framework that yields benefits for both.
These trips are specifically designed for those;
- Interested in exploring a mutually beneficial strategy or idea between you and local people on a specific sector such as education, health or business entrepreneurship.
- Business opportunity through impact investment and innovation.
- Interested in learning a skill from local people. Every community has skills that have been passed through them
During your trip with us, you have the opportunity meet the right people, have a sense of community issues and find a mutually beneficial way to collaborate and make a lasting positive impact. We do the due diligence of identifying opportunities in various sectors and the key players to ensure that your time with us is efficiently spent making connections with the communities and/or business sectors of your interest.
