Africa Board Fellowship

The key feature that distinguishes companies who consistently strike a balance between social and financial impact objectives is a coherent and committed Board that represents all stakeholders.

Grassroots assists others in building effective governance to achieve their social and financial goals.

Governance Experience

Over the past 20 years, Grassroots has served on dozens of Boards and Board Committees: of impact funds, impact companies, and impact industry bodies. In addition to our direct participation in Boards, we train directors, assess company governance, serve as TA’s and contribute to “best practice” and governance tools.
