Building community entrepreneurship: hosted in Khayelitsha

The University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) and the IE Business School in Spain will be hosting a Leaders Angle talk in Khayelitsha presented by social entrepreneur Max Oliva. The talk is held in association with Hubspace, a shared workspace for entrepreneurs in Khayelitsha where USB is closely involved with small business owners as part of the USB Small Business Academy, offering networking opportunities, business acumen and advice for small business owners to strengthen their businesses, enhance employment and fuel economic growth and sustainability.

Oliva is the co-founder of  Impact Hub Madrid, a global network of people, places and programmes that inspire, connect and catalyse impact. Oliva is also professor of Social Innovation and director of Social Impact Management at IE Business School, Spain. He will discuss the challenges and opportunities we face today that require unlikely allies to work together in radically different ways through real projects and enterprises. He will amongst other address how we can co-create radical learning eco-systems for business, entrepreneurship and education; why business and education is separated and the ingredients needed to enable innovation.
