Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Catalysing social innovation

The Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a specialised unit at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business (GSB).

Established in 2011 in partnership with the Bertha Foundation, a family foundation that works with inspiring leaders who are catalysts for social and economic change and human rights, the Centre has become a leading academic centre in Africa. 

In collaboration with the GSB, the Centre has integrated social innovation into the business school curriculum, established a wide community of practitioners and awarded over R6-million in scholarships to students from across Africa. At the GSB, the Centre works closely with academic faculty, the MTN Solution Space, and the Raymond Ackerman Academy of Entrepreneurial Development.
