We work with individuals, teams and impact-focussed organisations. Our process begins with an exploratory session to better understand your challenges, and identify enablers of success. The process we design would be a combination of coaching sessions, facilitated strategy development, and technical support. We also offer tailored capacity building programmes to support funding readiness. Contact us to book a discovery session.

Game-changing fundraising support for UCT researchers
Transform your research team's fundraising capabilities with our six-week strategy-development programme. This is an intensive, game-changing team experience which will transform the way you approach fundraising and research development, at any career stage. It is endorsed by the University of Cape Town (UCT) Research Office, and tailored for groups working in the UCT-ecosystem.
About the course
Research teams need to be financially sustainable and create visible social impact. Government funding is diminishing year-on-year, making it more critical for research teams to pursue diverse fundraising opportunities to achieve their research objectives.
To equip researchers with the strategic fundraising skills they need the UCT Research Office has endorsed the development of an online coaching and strategy development programme.
This programme has been tailored for UCT researchers and support staff. It is designed to empower research teams of any size to take control of their income model and strategic direction. There is also a version of the course that is tailored for emerging researchers, who don't yet have an established research team.
"This course will get you to contextualise your research within a societal need and present it in a way that will make its value more transparent and engaging to a funder or funding agency"
