Close the Gap present at round table discussion with His Majesty King Philippe of Belgium

At the beginning of July, Close the Gap’s Founder and General Manager Olivier Vanden Eynde attended a round table discussion organised by His Majesty King Philippe of Belgium. During this interesting meeting, the participants discussed social entrepreneurship. Central was the idea that social entrepreneurs are crucial for filling in the gap between governments, NGOs and corporate organisations to cater to the underserved communities at the base of the pyramid, particularly in Africa, in areas of education, health, and many other basic goods and services.
