Theory of Impact

Emmanuel Nyame’s social impact measurement is classified as an understanding how much social change occurred and can be attributed to his activities. The integrity of the process is bolstered by his impact statement and a clear impact-driven, stakeholder-focused strategy.  It  is very different from data collection, impact assessment and impact reporting but often gets mixed into those categories! Emmanuel’s key performance areas are categorized into Entrepreneurship Development and Community Development. Since 2008, he has recorded incredible accomplishments in these areas and is determined to do more.

Entrepreneurship Development

The fact that the financing of the young African startups remain a challenge because of the structural limit of classic investment vehicle is not a secret any more. Despite the increasing will of investors to see the continent as a land of opportunities, their will to reduce the size of investment ticket to match very small company needs has been confronted with the lack of operational expertise of those small structures.
