Since launching in 2004, SE Forum has carried out a varied range of programs, training sessions, workshops and accelerators to support social entrepreneurs with business skills, leadership training, marketing, and much more. To grow the social entrepreneurship eco-system we continue to develop solutions and partnerships that inspire, promote and empower the sector. Here you can read about our current programs and opportunities.

 

SE Outreach Accelerator 

The SE Outreach Accelerator is a six month scaling program for social  entrepreneurs running businesses that address social and environmental challenges facing low- and middle income countries. In 2017, our participants were from Malaysia, Guatemala, Botswana, Pakistan, Uganda, Nigeria and Kenya.

 

SE Social Business Bootcamp

The Social Business Bootcamp is an intense 10-day course for people who have an idea they believe can solve a social or environmental challenge. The training helps participants turn their ideas into viable business plans. We have delivered Bootcamps in countries such as Kenya, Jordan and Palestine.

 

SE Training of Trainers

This 2-part training course offers educators and trainers the opportunity to learn how to facilitate Social Business Bootcamps by identifying, educating and supporting social entrepreneurs. The first part of the training introduces participants to SE Forum’s methodology, while the second part enables them to put what they’ve learnt into practice as they co-facilitate a session of the Social Business Bootcamp alongside the SE Forum lead trainer. In 2016, we delivered two of these programs, one in Kenya and one in Palestine and trained 28 participants in total. We also ran a Training of Trainers program with eight business lectures in the Africa Nazarene University in Nairobi. One year later, the university has updated the entire business curriculum based on our methodology and its lecturers have conducted social entrepreneurship trainings with a total of 562 participants.

GATHER Fellowship

SE Forum is partnering with Seeds of Peace on the 2017-2018 GATHER Fellowship, looking to answer the question: How do we move beyond superficial diversity to leverage our differences and build thriving, equitable communities across lines of conflict? Accepted Fellows are provided personalized support to advance their work, tools to hone their professional skill-set, entry into a worldwide leadership network, and access to a pool of funds to expand their impact.
