Social entrepreneurs develop new, innovative solutions to address the entrenched social and environmental challenges we face. We work closely with them to significantly increase their impact in Ireland.
To get our best entrepreneurs working to solve our biggest societal problems, we run an in-depth selection process to attract and select the social entrepreneurs with the most potential to bring about social impact.
We significantly increase the impact of Ireland’s highest potential social entrepreneurs through our Awards Programme, an in-depth, tailored support programme. Through this, Awardees are provided with access to in-kind supports and training, helping them to develop a detailed and robust growth plan for their projects to scale effectively.
To ensure that social entrepreneurs receive the practical and moral support needed to bring about change, and to foster a culture of innovation in the social sector in Ireland, we illuminate the work of social entrepreneurs around Ireland.
- We celebrate the best social entrepreneurs at our annual awards event.
- We run Ireland’s foremost community of social entrepreneurs – the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Alumni Network.
- We engage directly with governmental, business leaders and the not-for-profit sector in Ireland.
