Welcome to the Social Enterprise Accelerator



Social Entrepreneurship Free Courses

Social entrepreneurship is a growing global movement. 10% of European Union affairs are social affairs, employing over 13.6 million people, ie 6.3% of employees in the Union! Compared to the classic business, social affairs are oriented towards society, environment and people, hence the interest of the European Commission and many European states to bring this topic on the public agenda and create a favorable development framework.

Social entrepreneurship is recognized as a hybrid model that combines economic performance or profit with the passion and compassion needed to create a fairer and better world. Social entrepreneurs are looking for innovative ways to solve community problems. They are visionary leaders who want to bring about positive change in society.

We are selecting 100 young people, aged between 18 and 34, to participate in the free Social Entrepreneurship course. Selection period April 13 - 25.
