Transforming shopping during Covid 19 in low income township in South Africa
Nova SBE innovating in the teaching of impact and sustainability!
From climate change, to poverty or gender inequality, enterprises and businesses are now asked to walk the talk- but what can be done? What is being done? The Grad students of Prof. Filipe Alfaiate course “Leading Impact Enterprises in International Development”, designed and developed podcasts as their final assignment where they applied the course’s content - and the best podcasts are at the centre of this Sustainability and Impact Global Series!
This first season has eight exciting episodes exploring how some enterprises in Africa are working towards impact and sustainability. We will look into the tools they use, the challenges they face, how they adapt their pricing, marketing, distribution to commercially reach a growing market of more than 2,5 billion people - with a positive impact!
In this episode we look into Yebo Fresh. A startup that in its first year had to re-invent itself when lock-down first hit in South African, and, as a consequence, saw their volumes grow by thirty times almost overnight. Listen to the impact journey of this a groundbreaking enterprise supplying township communities with affordable on-demand business and home grocery deliveries – something unheard before! Join us as we tackle challenging points. How to do the last mile delivery in so many times there are no door numbers, no street names? How using technologies is leveraging their model to create more opportunities? What is the right amount of private and public funding? A work researched and put together by graduate students Cláudia Pinhal, Ilaria Traetta, Matilde Gazzaniga, Juan Ignacio Conde, Manon Michele Prot.
