E&I Grey


Fast tracking new talent, faster

It’s a creativity revolution.

The E+I Empowerment Trust is the engine behind a South African communication agency hub with a difference.

Instead of tackling transformation through the traditional scorecard alone, it pilots a hybrid empowerment model that provides business-critical support to previously disadvantaged independents in our industry. It’s our way of giving new creative businesses the advantage to grow faster – and it has the power to open up more depth and breadth in the brand communication skills base.

Our vision is to facilitate development of talented freelancers and micro enterprises who intimately understand, speak and translate the diversity and dynamics of South Africans and life in our country.

The campus provides administrative resources and mentorship to these designers, copywriters/content developers, production managers, public relations professionals, digital/social media specialists, media strategists/planners and audio-visual/filmmaking communities. It includes support for account management professionals.

Our E+I Empowerment Trust gives these creative, marketing and media business owners a safe, resourced space from which to seed new creative business growth.
