Business for good

As the traditional business sector is increasingly working to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, social entrepreneurship as an approach is growing, in Sweden and globally. At SE Forum, we see the importance in taking action across sectors and we very much believe in collaboration and partnerships. We’re therefore working to encourage collaborations between social enterprises and the traditional business sector, to create greater social impact and sustainable growth.

We do this through our programmes and by speaking at events, but we’re also currently running a project funded by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket) to increase our efforts. The project aims to explore and establish what’s needed to connect various players, to help them take the necessary steps, together, towards successful partnerships that achieve both social and financial value.

SE Forum will initially gather knowledge, insights, suggestions and tips in a report that will be shared across our channels and that will also be used as a basis for the educational material SE Forum plans to develop at a later stage in the project. We’re looking for suggestions on social enterprises and traditional businesses to interview and we’re also interested in hearing from entrepreneurs and companies that are interested in getting involved to create social impact through collaborations. For suggestions and any questions, please email Tove Nordström at tove.nordstrom@se-forum.se
