About the Social Enterprise Happy Hour Series

Launched in Nairobi in 2013 One Acre Fund's monthly Social Enterprise Happy Hours are equal parts lecture series (with engaging speakers) and happy hour (with a free drink for punctual attendees.) Social Entrepreneurs from all sectors have been featured including speakers from Kiva, Acumen, Gardens for Health, MEST and, of course, One Acre Fund. With regular events in six cities - including Nairobi, Kigali, Kampala, and Accra - the Social Enterprise Happy Hour series is the premier networking event for social entrepreneurs across the continent.

About One Acre Fund

One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the tools and financing they need to grow their way out of hunger and poverty. Instead of giving handouts, we invest in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income. We supply a complete service bundle of seeds and fertilizer, financing, training, and market facilitation—and we deliver these services within walking distance of the 280,000 rural farmers we serve. We measure success in our ability to make farmers more prosperous and we always put Farmers First. To learn more, visit us at
