For the last year the Social Entrepreneurs Network has followed eight social entrepreneurs, and held quarterly events and monthly breakfasts based on the challenges they faced.
RSA Social Enterprise Spotlight. The aim was to use the expertise and contacts of the Fellowship to help these enterprises grow and in doing so help the rest of the network and other social enterprises learn as well.
Put differently: it is about tapping into the power of many minds to get help and support for social entrepreneurs - often from unexpected corners.
The quarterly events focused on mentoring and advisory board, funding and how to ‘survive before you can thrive’.
The 8 social enterprises were a mixture of start-ups moving through to larger, more established social enterprises and they focus on a range of issues. You can view the social entrepreneurs and enterprises involved in this list.
