The Accelerator program from SE Forum

SE Outreach consists of several programs, helping social entrepreneurs who address pressing issues in the developing world and emerging markets, to accelerate their businesses so that their innovative ideas can grow into high-impact solutions to the world’s social and environmental problems.

SE Outreach Accelerator Programs

SE Outreach consist of different Accelerator programs that aim to support and facilitate the emergence of social entrepreneurs from all over the world, whose innovations and ideas address societal and environmental challenges facing developing and emerging markets.

The programs provide boot-camp-like experiences filled with seminars, workshops and coaching sessions to provide the boost, resources and capacity entrepreneurs need to get going and to accelerate.

The programs are made possible through a partnership with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
