Alfanar provides online and offline immersive management support, structured one-on-one mentorship, access to networks and our twelve-module ASSET training programme to social enterprises outside our core portfolio.
Our aim is to support the social entrepreneurship sector beyond our own portfolio, which is why we run temporary projects or contribute to our partners' projects by providing the following:
A-La-Carte Social Enterprise Support
Deployment of specific steps from our venture philanthropy methodology (due diligence, selection process, ASSET training or mentorship) which can also be done in partnership with peers, as part of a consortium or on behalf of global organisations that have no local presence in Egypt or Lebanon.
Full Cycle Social Enterprise Support
Deployment of our end-to-end venture philanthropy methodology during a one-off project for a specific portfolio of social enterprises.
Our clients are typically eco-system peers and partners (accelerators, bootcamps, incubators, global venture philanthropists with no local presence), foundations, NGOs, impact investor funds, international donors and implementers of donor-funded projects. Once a client has expressed interest we usually prepare a formal project proposal based on a clearly defined scope and timeframe for delivery.
What Makes Us Different?
Our main differentiator with other consulting firms is our unparalleled on-the-ground experience and understanding of the social entrepreneurship sector and our unique impact management methodology and tools, combined with the consultancy competencies of our staff.
