British Council’s Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE) program, in partnership with Simayne and Social Enterprise UK, recently published a survey on creative and social entrepreneurs in South Africa.

Some of the key findings from the report:

  • Many of the barriers highlighted by creative and social enterprises are related to funding
  • Creative and social enterprises are highly inclusive, employing higher numbers of women and youth
  • Leaderships skills are important to creative and social enterprise success
  • Both creativity and innovation were extremely important to their business
  • Creative and social enterprises are working towards a range of the SDGs and other impact and creative goals but are particularly focused on gender equality
  • The majority of social enterprises, and almost half of creative enterprises are measuring their impact
