Whether you’re a social entrepreneur, a supporter of the community or interested in learning more – come and celebrate SE Forum’s vision to contribute to a more just and sustainable world by unleashing the potential of social entrepreneurs to address society’s most pressing problems.

Founded in 2004, SE Forum has worked with social entrepreneurs from Sweden and around the world, seeing first-hand the impact they make every day, everywhere. We give our entrepreneurs opportunities to strengthen their business skills, challenge them to find a sustainable model 
for their business and provide a network of support to help them reach their goal of making a lasting impact in their communities.

Nicklas Wallberg, Executive Director, and Fiona Hazell, Program Director, will introduce you to SE Forum’s work and share stories where social entrepreneurs, motivated by the seemingly impossible, unleashed their passions to create positive societal change.

After their TED-inspired presentation we will have a network mingle at our new office, Norrsken House.

Warmest welcome!
