Shift Impact Africa is a Shared Value advocacy, training, purposeful branding, and consultation firm with a passion for assisting businesses in finding the Shared Value strategy that works for them – to help you do good while doing good business.
Shared Value is about creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges
Frequently, companies are not sure how to move from purely profit-focused to demonstrating their responsibility towards their environment and society. Shift Impact Africa assists clients to identify social challenges relevant to the business, and to implement the Shared Value enterprise where growth opportunities lie.
Shift was born out of the need to assist business to transform strategy and accelerate change to address inequalities in society through motivating business alignment with the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our team of diverse motivated Shared Value advocates is driven by a passion for profit with purpose. Shift is a women-owned organization with majority-black shareholding (B-BBEE Level p2). Building a team of empowered, capable women were part of the Shift strategy from the beginning. According to EY’s 2016 report, Scaling Up (a part of the Groundbreakers series), “[w]omen-owned enterprises grow faster than those owned by men and faster than businesses overall”, and can be the “tipping point” for a global economic comeback.
