Recent Western Cape Business News

MBA students at University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of business have spearheaded the launch of an international society, Net Impact in Cape Town, the first in the Southern African region, which could see new and stronger bridges built between business and business schools in South Africa.

Net Impact is an International non-profit organisation with a mission to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.

The organisation is made up of more than 15 000 MBAs, graduate students and professionals around the world, most of whom are emerging leaders in corporate responsibility, social entrepreneurship, non-profit management, International development and environmental sustainability.

Our aim is to professionalise students’ drive for change. Net Impact is a network of professionals all with a deep sense of business-for-development. We aim to make a meaningful difference through action and networking with business – we are not just ‘greenies’,” said Eben Welby-Solomon, in charge of business partnerships at Net Impact.

The launch, held at Buena Vista Social Club in Sea Point, near UCT’s Graduate School of Business (GSB), marked the formation of the first chapter in South Africa. In light of the increasing importance of emergent economies in world business it is anticipated that the chapter, could be a highly successful initiative.
