SEDA Business Incubation Impact Evaluation (2020)

 

SEDA commissioned C4G to offer impact evaluation services for their business Incubation programme. The project logic model for the project was that for South Africa to achieve its job and wealth creation goals, resources invested in MSME growth must be deployed more efficiently, transparently, and sustainably. C4G’s adopted a system-wide approach for all the businesses connected to SEDA and a review of related frameworks. C4G made use of the open-source, technology-driven analytics platform to assist in data collection and analysis. To assess the impact, review and measure the impact and outcomes of the project on C4G used the OECD framework. This led us to draw on the lessons learned to use these lessons to improve and develop relevant and impactful future projects of SEDA in South Africa. Beyond the project, through learnings, C4G also assisted in setting out a framework for M&E to ensure that expected outputs and impact indicators are effectively and efficiently monitored and assessed during each phase of programme implementation.
