Wits Business School invites you to a lecture on Social Entrepreneurship: Creating social value in society and business by focusing on social finance, impact investing and social innovation policy to be delivered by Professor Alex Nicholls from Saïd Business School, Oxford University.
Professor Alex Nicholls MBA is the first tenured professor in social entrepreneurship appointed at the University of Oxford and was the first staff member of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship in 2004. His research interests range across several key areas within social entrepreneurship and social innovation, including: the nexus of relationships between accounting, accountability, and governance; public and social policy contexts; social investment; and Fair Trade. To date Nicholls has published more than fifty papers, chapters and articles and four books. Most appear in a wide range of peer reviewed journals and books, including four sole authored papers in Financial Times Top 30 journals. His 2009 paper on social investment won the Best Paper Award (Entrepreneurship) at the British Academy of Management. In 2010, Nicholls edited a Special Edition of Entrepreneurship, Theory and Practice on social entrepreneurship -- the first time a top tier management journal had recognized the topic in this way. He is the General Editor of the Skoll Working Papers series and the Editor of the Journal of Social Entrepreneurship. Panellists:
• Professor Imraan Valodia - Dean: Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management, Wits UniversityMs Catherine Townshed - Endeavor South Africa: Managing DirectorMr Pascal Fröhlicher - Impact Amplifier: PartnerMr Devang Vussonji - Dalberg - Global Development Advisors: Associate Partner
• Professor Boris Urban: Chair in Entrepreneurship, Wits Business School.
The panel discussion will focus on how businesses in emerging markets need to cultivate a social component around their business models which can shape their social values and outcomes. Social entrepreneurship has gained popularity under shifting market conditions and can be viewed as a process that catalyses social change and varies according to the socioeconomic, cultural and institutional environments. In South Africa, social entrepreneurship has unequivocal application where traditional government initiatives are unable to satisfy the entire social deficit, where an effort on the reduction in dependency on social welfare/grants is currently being instituted, and where the survival of many non-governmental organizations (NGO's) is at stake. Recognizing that a key issue confronting social entrepreneurs relates to the evaluation of outcomes, the panel discussion will hopefully facilitate a better understanding of the assessment of social initiatives.

One retailer in Cape Town, South Africa has been tapping into a relatively new market in the country, selling food waste products at discounted rates to the public. In developing countries food loss equates to around 310 billion dollars annually but a lot of that waste is perfectly safe to consume and be sold as well. This retailer has now become somewhat of a local food waste champion who is also relieving pressure on cash strapped consumers. Travers Andrews has this report.
