C4G Platform Overview
The SAB Foundation has been part of the stakeholder group that has been working with and benefiting from the work of C4G since its inception in 2015 and has been part of the evolution of the role of C4G’s work from the Beta phase right through to the post Beta phase. We have been sharing data over the period and have been part of the learning sessions and trends gleaned from the data collected from many other BDSPs in the ecosystem.
The cloud-based platform assists its partners to collect SMME performance data and helps many organisations, including our own, to track the performance of our SMME cohorts over time. The reports produced by the platform are independently verified and the benchmark reports are most useful for us in benchmarking the performance of our cohorts with similar data populations in the data set.

We recently contracted C4G to design and undertake a review of our various GrowSupplier ZA Roadshow events which spanned over several months. They were required to produce an ” Impact Assessment Study” in April 2019.
Through the partnership of this project, we saw the value of working with C4G, as an independent development agency that specialises in Monitoring and Evaluation within the entrepreneurial development ecosystem. We worked swiftly with the C4G team from developing the project plan, creating the monitoring tools, data analysis and writing the report. The exercise gave us an opportunity to not only evaluate the impact of our various interventions, but it also helped us identify gaps for improvement work.”
