Green & Business skills

The Green Business College is a college dedicated to building ‘green’ entrepreneurs where students are taught ‘green’ skills with business know-how. Established in 2017 as a social enterprise by SEED Community (www.seedcom.org), it is inspired by the BOOKBRIDGE model (www.bookbridge.org) and has been founded with the support of the HILTI Foundation (www.hiltifoundation.org).

Sales Channels & Financial Autonomy

With a focus on the under-employed members of the community, we teach innovative ‘green skills’ partnered with key business skills and offer continued support by linking our students to sales channels and ongoing business coaching as they develop their business.

By course end students are able to establish their own small ‘green’ business, with the opportunity to achieve financial autonomy and form part of a sustainable solution to the environmental, economic and social crisis South Africa is facing today.

Vision and Mission

The Green Business College is an inspiring and innovative hub of learning, where we continue to foster a community of successful ‘green’ entrepreneurs. Our vision is for the Green Business College to be replicated in communities across Africa creating a network of centres, trainers and ‘green’ entrepreneurs.
