WHAT WE ARE UP TO
The company has recently been part of a business incubator program spearheaded by Impact Amplifier. The title, Green Pioneer Accelerator. Impact Amplifier is a company that strives to cultivate, support and driving impact businesses. Impact businesses are for profit with inherent impact through, by and from their processes. It combines the capitalist model with the NGO model, creating a system that works run sustainable businesses that contribute to the betterment of lives and the environment. They teamed up with HIVOS, VC4Africa and GrowthAfrica to provide a sponsored 4 month intensive incubator program to develop investment ready impact businesses.
Lady Bonin’s Tea was one of 12 South African companies chosen in this flagship project heading towards its end. The process has been incredible, from allowing us to fine-tune the business processes, strategise and financially plan the next crucial stages that will allow us to have the greatest impact, while scaling the business and preparing for the next phase of development and growth.
On the 11th June 2015 we pitch our businesses to a panel of potential investors. It is allowing us to bring tea to people, and people to tea.
