According to him, “Social entrepreneurship is the catalyst to drive growth in Africa. It has created a significant number of jobs across sub-Saharan Africa and the jobs created are typically for people from underserved communities. They don’t just exist to support poorer or marginalised groups; they employ them as well.”

He concluded by stating the intrinsic interdependence of social and economic development in Africa makes a strong case for social entrepreneurship.
