" Being part of the Millennium Fellowship will help broaden my exposure to a network of like-minded students passionate about exploring creative methods through which Africa can adopt more sustainable development models. I will also get a premise to share my ideas and borrow from other perspectives, an exchange that will build my career in ways unimagined. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Think Different: Hybrid Business Models

Think Different is an educational project conducted by Godfrey Ndlovu that aims to educate university and high school students about the prospects of venturing into social entrepreneurship. The project targets aspiring founders, active student-entrepreneurs, and individuals with a keen interest in social innovation. During the Millenium Fellowship, Think Different will hold four seminars - lecturing primarily on the Hybrid Business Model and why it is a sustainable development vehicle for our communities. Other activities include creating awareness around available opportunities for social impact, pitch-deck presentations, and a host of other fun entrepreneurship exercises.

About the Millennium Fellow

Godfrey is a Chemical Engineering student who is profoundly passionate about the immense potential of employing nonprofit business models in solving Africa's pressing problems. He believes that socially innovating African businesses into hybrid companies with a solid competitive edge within the traditional business arena will help accelerate Africa's development and signify cut dependency on foreign funding.
His approach encourages corporate responsibility, a circular economy, environmental accountability, and a grassroots regard for the SDGs.
Godfrey is working on a start-up whose vision is to provide equitable access to clean water to SADC's under-served communities, especially regions most affected by Climate Change.
