Indego Africa was excited to participate in the Southern California Net Impact Industry Night at the UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History on February 29. The event united organizations promoting socially responsible business practices with graduate business school students from USC, UCLA, and other area universities.
While sharing Indego Africa’s business model
and internship opportunities
with students, LA Regional Board Chair Eric Mills and Regional Board Member Elias Kamal Jabbe, were delighted to hear that many of them were already familiar with Indego’s work. One USC student was even currently writing a term paper on Indego Africa for his social entrepreneurship course!
The diversity of participants was a notable aspect of the evening. Exhibitors ranged from newly established startups, including cause integration platform Causecast, to Fortune 500 companies like sustainable recycling company Waste Management. It was an honor for Indego Africa to be included in this group of admirable companies and also a pleasure to meet so many students committed to creating positive social change.
Special thanks to the event’s corporate sponsor, Clean Tech Los Angeles, which works to increase environmental sustainability in Southern California, and Nicholas Hasara and Russ Altenberg, presidents of the USC Marshall School and UCLA Anderson School of Management chapters of Net Impact.
