To All of Our Beneficiaries, Partners, Donors, Focal Points, and Stakeholders, 

After almost five years spent on supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in Southern Africa, the SAIS 2 Programme has come to an end. In this time, we all have had a massive impact on the entrepreneurship landscape across the region. At SAIS 2 Programme Management Office, we are confident that this will lead to ever greater strides in African innovation in the future. 

None of the SAIS 2 Programme‚Äôs achievements would have been possible without the professionalism and dedicated engagement provided by all of you. 

SAIS 2 Programme Management Office is honoured to work with all of you, and hopes to do so again in future. 

All the Best!
