As part of our work to advocate and strengthen social entrepreneurship as well as growing the social entrepreneurship ecosystem we promote good examples and inspire to create change. This also involves researching what is currently being done to support social entrepreneurs and what could be done to improve this work. We work with partners, national and international, to map the ecosystem and have published publications to share insights and encourage further developments.
Publication on collaborations between social entrepreneurs and the business sector
Our most recent publication was produced as part of a project aiming to increase and strengthen collaborations between social entrepreneurs and the more traditional business sector, funded by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth. It focuses on opportunities as well as challenges in developing collaborations that create positive change, for the collaborating parties as well as the world as a whole. You can read the full report in Swedish here, and in English here.
Publication on collaborations between social enterprises and municipalities in Sweden, Latvia and Belarus
In 2018 we published a publication, developed with partners from Latvia (Social Entrepreneurship Association of Latvia) and Belarus (ODB Brussels) with funding from Nordic Council of Ministers, looking at the Baltic region and collaborations between social enterprises and municipalities in Sweden, Latvia and Belarus. You can read the review here, and if you’d like to discuss potential partnerships and future research we would love to hear from you so please get in touch at info[at]se-forum.se
