Once the awareness is there – businesses are keen to meet the people that can help them improve their sustainable inclusive business practice. You might need a recycler? A better graphic designer, a strategic partner, a like-minded supplier. A lot of the times you need people with solutions that are not part of your sector, or business line you are operating in.
THE BIGGEST MATCHMAKING EVENT WE ORGANIZE IS THE ANNUAL SIB CONFERENCE. We have received feedback that approximately each visitor on the Conference goes home with 3 relevant new contact/leads/opportunities. With that in mind we reckon that SIBKenya through all events (including conference) have matched 3000 x 3, to be modest with 1 contact of true impact = 3000 matches.
