What did Somo need?

Derek helped Somo create customized visual design elements that complement written copy for printed communications and marketing materials.

Why is this project important?

This project is to compile and design Somo's Entrepreneurship Bootcamp curriculum. This is an important project to streamline our training process as we expand our program and bring on more trainers and trainees. We want to create a curriculum that is easy to follow and visually pleasing.

This project will save us $3,002, allowing us to invest in 3 new start-ups!

About Somo

SOMO is the root of a Swahili word meaning "lesson". We are called SOMO because we all have lessons to learn from each other. Visionary entrepreneurs exist in informal settlements around the world.

SOMO identifies, trains, funds, and mentors entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities. We invest in social entrepreneurs and provide the training and tools to help them build enterprises that change their communities from within. By investing in the right people, we help break the cycle of poverty and help bring long-term stability to urban slum areas.
Fun Fact
