Driving Stakeholder Engagement & Collaboration


We’ve had a busy start to 2020! One of our goals this year is aimed at driving stakeholder engagement & collaboration in order to generate social impact. Last month we were invited to attend a range of events aimed at this goal. Maanch also focus’ on stakeholder collaboration by mobilising capital & resources towards impactful initiatives within the philanthropy ecosystem both on & offline. Check out some of our great work this year so far!

Highlights include:

• Attending The World Economic Forum’s 50th Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Check out our newest blog post to read our ‘Top 5 Learnings’ from our trip to Davos. 

• Participating in The UK Fintech Trade Mission to Switzerland & Austria organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT) and the Scottish Development International (SDI). Maanch was one of 30 UK FinTech organisations chosen to present our FinTech solutions to senior executives in Austrian and Swiss banks, insurance companies, asset management and venture capital firms.

• Maanch facilitated an offline giving opportunity for the Global One Foundation, to receive complete integral education support for 10 amazing children in the Nairobi neighbourhood of Kibera from a generous private donor. 

“I’m happy for the alignment in values & vision for creating holistic and sustainable opportunities. – Justin Vero, Global One Foundation.  

We are looking forward to continuing our progress in representing Maanch all over the world, as well as searching for further opportunities to drive stakeholder engagement & collaboration.

Finally, we would really appreciate if you would fill out this super short feedback sheet on the type of content you’d like to see from us in our upcoming newsletters!
