Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is all about scaling great new solutions for social problems in Ireland. In addition to an annual Awards Programme, we also host a series of themed speaker events entitled “The Impact Series”.
The Impact Series is an exciting series of themed speaker events which engages leaders from the business, public and non-profit sector as well as some of Ireland’s leading social entrepreneurs in a national conversation designed to inspire innovative ideas and to spark discussion and debate around key social issues and the role that social entrepreneurship can have in addressing these issues. Recognising the importance of looking at the broader social and economic context in which social entrepreneurship exists, The Impact Series explores a number of themes throughout the course of the year, and speakers include a broad range of experts from all sectors of society.
Previous events have shed a light on various social themes and you can watch highlights from each of these events on the following links; education, employment, disability, the power of entrepreneurship, innovation in health, building an inclusive recovery, unlocking a positive future for offenders. The Impact Series events also offer early-stage social entrepreneurs the chance to pitch for our Minnovation Fund, where all ticket proceeds are donated to a winning start-up venture on the night.
