Serbia: SEtalks #4 – Development of social entrepreneurship ecosystem

Swedish meeting culture

This event is organised by Young Ambassadors Serbia in collaboration with SI and is open to young people from WB countries – participating in SAYP program

Building a conducive eco-system for development of social entrepreneurship is a prerequisite for social enterprises to realize their role. Enabling system fosters social innovation, growth of social enterprises, and maximizes their impact and contribution to transformational change paving the way for significantly improving the wellbeing of people. No social enterprise operates in a vacuum. Many interdependent systems, institutions, and networks enable social enterprises to flourish.

If you would like to start our own social enterprise, you should be aware on the importance of knowing how to navigate the SE ecosystem.

Join us at SEtalks #4 where we will discuss several topics:
