For social entrepreneurs

For social entrepreneurs

 

We support entrepreneurs that strive to change the world for better. Those hiring people with disabilities, working no waste, fighting against unemployment and furthering inclusivity. To ensure their aspirations are successful, we created study tours for social entrepreneurs. 

You will travel to the EU or the UK to adopt the experience. Ask around local business to determine effective financial models, learn about the laws in support of the sphere, and grasp how social entrepreneurship works in a specific country. Feel free to dive into studying, will take care of the translation, travel, accommodation, and meals. We hope the trip will be an inspiration you want to share with teammates in Ukraine.

This is for exploring social entrepreneurship all around the EU and the UK

Each time we strive to choose a specific topic and a different country best to represent it. We address issues like energy efficiency, socialisation, employment of disabled people, social entrepreneurship advocation, and on other subjects you find urgent.

This is for those who want everything to be planned

We will organise all of the planning, you think of all the learning and networking. We will choose a hot-button subject for a tour, pick social entrepreneurs that can guide you through it, and schedule hands-on workshops.

This is for new acquaintances within and outside Ukraine

Not only will you meet colleagues from the EU, but also representatives of the best Ukrainian social enterprises. So there will be a double portion of networking.

This is for social business managers and more

Our tours are for social businesses managers and everyone aspiring to further the sector in Ukraine: lawmakers, trainers, mentors, facilitators, workers of hubs and communities for social entrepreneurs. To participate, you need strong motivation and a genuine interest in the subject of the tour.

This is for businesses that have a tangible effect on society

We support enterprises whose social impact can be measured: companies that spend at least 10-15% of profit on social projects, that have 30% of their stuff representing disadvantaged groups, or create products that solve societal challenges. Social entrepreneurship is both about the impact and the profit, so we do not invite charitable organisations.

This is for you!

We connect people and opportunities

We support professional and creative exchange between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. This encompasses 20+ programme lines managed by us and a constantly increasing database of the best opportunities offered by other European organizations. This is just the beginning: more opportunities, events and acquaintances are coming.

We are all over Ukraine

We are convinced that we should go where our support and information are needed the most: out in the regions. Organising Pop-Up Hubs, creative entrepreneurship in the regions is stimulated, whereas the Mobile Pavilion sets our concept on the move.
