South Africa

Year started: 2010
(SEED was founded in South Africa in 2002)

Building on several years of successful SEED work in South Africa since 2010, the launch of Indalo Inclusive is a milestone in providing direct support to South African enterprises and aspiring entrepreneurs. Indalo Inclusive was established and registered in South Africa as a non-profit company in November 2017, in its offices at the Innovation Hub in Pretoria. Indalo – which stands for “creation”, “nature” and “ecology” in isiZulu – implements SEED and other projects that strengthen a more environmentally friendly and socially inclusive economy in South Africa through capacity building, dialogue and policy consulting.

The establishment of Indalo Inclusive was facilitated through pro-bono legal support from SEED’s partner Hogan Lovells.
