Training program for civil servants charged with advising on starting social businesses

Description

While there is already insufficient support for starting a business in terms of effective and efficient policy support, regulatory frameworks, targeted consulting and investment availability, or venture capitalists have become even more difficult as "social initiative" is still widely unknown.

However, social enterprises, given the specific roles among NGOs depending on donor funding and regular profit-oriented businesses, combine two segments that were often incompatible: social work and doing business capital is not regularly deducted from equity. of company capital. This requires a specific type of entrepreneur who engages entrepreneurs in solving social problems, e.g. in the field of education, environmental protection, employment creation for people with disabilities, or poverty reduction, or the like. As social enterprises contribute to increasing the well-being of the population, they need more attention.
