The Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship is the first academic centre in Africa dedicated to advancing social innovation and entrepreneurship. It was established as a specialised centre at the UCT Graduate School of Business in late 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 is now a leading academic centre in Africa.

Just for a change powered by the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship hosts 'Conversations with change-makers'. Spotlighting the stories of innovators, social entrepreneurs, industry leaders, activists and more about the work they do, and what makes them tick. We find out how they keep the fire burning when it comes to tackling some of the most - to use a systems change term - wicked problems - facing the world today.

We aim to appeal to people who are curious about solving social issues in the world around them and especially those who believe in changing the way we're changing the world.

Talking Tech for Good powered by the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

9 EPISODES |  Podcast, ±24 min episode every 1 week, 3 days
The idea for the ‘Talking Tech for Good’ podcast grew out of conversations between hosts Jason Bygate and Luvuyo Maskeo as they realised that they were coming up against similar issues in the social impact space when it comes to the adoption and use of technology by these organisations. This podcast sheds some light on the topic of tech and the ways that it can be harnessed to make life easier (and not more difficult, which can sometimes be the case!). Each podcast focuses on a specific topic and various guests join Jason and Luvuyo to discuss these topics. We also hear some questions from our listeners in this space and do our best to answer those and offer hands-on, practical insight and support.
