For social entrepreneurs

 

Social entrepreneurship is an emerging sector in Ukraine. For everyone who faces the challenge of incorporating a social element into their business, be it hiring people with disabilities as consultants, cook with no waste, or anything else, we have created our Study Tours. During the tour, you will meet business people from the EU and UK, learn more about their experience, ask all of the questions you have, and even find out how countries are dealing with social entrepreneurship on a legal level. We hope that the tour will help you work more productively and will be the beginning of a long-lasting partnership with EU-colleagues.

A study tour is similar to an excursion. You will go to Europe in a group with a clear plan for each day, together with a guide. The significant difference is that besides visiting landmarks, you will visit EU-colleagues at their workplaces. We will organise the tour and cover your expenses, and all that we ask in return is that you share some of the best practices with your teammates in Ukraine.

We open calls for study tours twice a year: in the spring and autumn. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when your call opens.

It is for trips to different countries

Each time we will strive to show the perspective of a different country. You will have the opportunity to meet local entrepreneurs, learn more about effective business models, and any legal initiatives that support social enterprises in that particular country. Each tour will be timely and practical.

It is for those who want everything to be planned

We will organise all of the planning, you think of all the learning and having fun. We will decide on the destination country, events you will visit, and transportation. Our guide will accompany you throughout the trip.

It is for new acquaintances within and outside Ukraine

We only accept individual applications, but you will not be on your own, as other talented Ukrainians will accompany you on tour. Your professional network will be enriched both by colleagues from the EU and other regions of Ukraine.

It is for social entrepreneurs and more

Our tours are for everyone aspiring to make a change in social entrepreneurship: business owners, enterprises managers, activist, and experts in their field. We will invite you on a trip if you have two years of experience, strong motivation, and there will be an opportunity to share new knowledge with colleagues. 

This is for you!

We connect people and opportunities

We support professional and creative exchange between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. This encompasses 18 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.
