"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."
R. Buckminster Fuller

Shift Social Development is a Shared Value advocacy, training, purposeful branding, and consultation firm with a passion for assisting businesses in finding the Shared Value strategy that works for them - to help you do good while doing good business. As a women-owned and -run firm with a millennial mindset, Shift represents the future of business. Through engaging with changemakers at every level of business management, in every field, Shift aims to help businesses embrace Shared Value as a part of their core strategy. In this way, these businesses will not only create a better world, but do better business too.

The Shared Value Africa Initiative (SVAI), founded and driven by Shift, was born from the need to raise awareness about and advocate for the adoption of the concept of Shared Value on the African continent and globally, enhance Shared Value networks on the African continent, and promote the production of and access to local research on Shared Value in the African context. It is no longer adequate for businesses to focus on profit margins alone. Creating Shared Value means doing good while doing good business, building social and environmental awareness into the very fundamentals of business strategy.

Shift Social Development is the organiser of the annual Africa Shared Value Summit. To find out more, visit
