Welcome to Kanangayi
Founded in Switzerland, we are a meaningful-impact association born to serve the vision of
a world in which each and everyone equitably leverages their innate talents to cultivate seeds of well-being, growth and prosperity for the better of People and Our Planet.
Kanangayi Symposium: we champion Changemakers
Networks: we foster entrepreneurial networks, social-impact ecosystems and DE&I communities
Africa: we promote value-added trade, in shifting away from raw-material trade
In service to our vision, our mission is to enable every Changemaker's meaningful impact.
The Kanangayi Symposium is a social, economic & environmental impact platform that champions both entrepreneurial and corporate changemakers, by collaboratively fostering stronger communities and thriving organizations that drive forward the agenda of a more equitable world.
We foster an entrepreneurial ecosystem that drives social entrepreneurship, encourages collaborative partnerships, and promotes responsible innovation and meaningful impact.
DE&I Community Network, Switzerland
The positive impact of a diverse and inclusive workforce are self-evident.
Kanangayi further facilitates the competitive advantage through both our DE&I Community Network, as well as our Diverse Supplier Sourcing Initiative.
Beyond equity in the workplace as a key driver for a culture that leverages the full extent of diversity and belonging, the commitment to strong results is inclusive of both talent-for-hire and supplier-of-choice.
Our DE&I Community Networks cover a wide cross-sectoral range, that includes Academia, Startups, SME's and Large Corporations, and Entrepreneurs, Early Careers and Seasoned Professionals.
Our Supplier-of-Choice options offer just as much depth, with a strong presence across the Swiss Startup space.
Africa: SDG8, Decent Work & Economic Growth
In line with the Sustainable Development Goal number 8, our work in Africa addresses value-added production & manufacturing. We accompany African brands throughout their growth, as a means to facilitate the creation of self-sustaining industries.
Our paradigm-shifting approach is rooted in the economic ideals of the transformation of raw-materials into semi-finished and/or finished goods, as a key transformative prerequisite to enable a globally-competitive pricing based on know-how and excellence, as opposed to supply & demand dynamics (commoditized trade).
Our long-term aspirations are to rebrand the continent from a raw-material sourcing origin, into a globally-competitive (external) manufacturing hub.
Kanangayi's foremost deliverable: inclusive and sustainable economic growth,
full and productive employment and decent work for all.
decent work & economic growth enable the alleviation of poverty and hunger, improved health and well-being, the reduction of inequalities, and consequently influence resilient cities and communities, inevitably powering balanced outputs, responsible consumption and circular replenishment, while shaping the stability and consistency of institutions.
The Kanangayi Vision
We envision a world in which each and everyone can equitably leverage their innate talents to cultivate seeds
of well-being, growth and prosperity for the better of People and Our Planet.
