Enterprise supporter Somo recently hosted an exhibition for individuals to showcase their talents and products made of eco-friendly materials. The event took place at Alchemist, Westlands. 

Somo identifies, trains, funds and mentors entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities. They invest in social entrepreneurs and provide the training and tools to help them build enterprises that change their communities from within.

Anto Neosoul crew took the event to another level of entertainment with a live band of soul music.
