• Philosophy


    IGALELO - "Impact" in Zulu - was founded in South Africa in 2016 with the goal to expand economic opportunities for disadvantaged South African communities to participate in a vibrant, inclusive and diverse economy.


    Our 12-month incubation programme leverages social business and inclusive entrepreneurship as powerful tools to address major inequalities and promote social inclusion in the country. We empower underserved communities and turn their talents into sustainable income. We help aspiring entrepreneurs by fostering a widespread entrepreneurial culture within their communities. Our model promotes economic sustainability and long-term positive social and environmental impact through business training and skills development.
