SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

 

Social entrepreneurship is the most sustainable way
to contribute to the social-economic development
of our region, through self-employment and job creation, by developing products and services with a positive impact, or by orienting profits towards social needs

WHAT WE DO
  • developed our own SOCIAL ENTREPRISE in the form of a training center in the village of Rîșcova, acting as a regional hub for practical education, ecological agriculture and construction and providing jobs for the local community;

  • create regular opportunities for social and eco-entrepreneurs to NETWORK with peers and stakeholders, to gain visibility and sell their products;

  • design educational programs as INCUBATION and ACCELERATION via trainings, mentoring and tracking to support financial and nonfinancial the growth of local social enterprises, to guide them to identify the functional business model and clear social impact;

  • develop ECOSYSTEM and COMMUNITY of changemakers and stakeholders in order to upgrade the perception of social impact, innovation, creative economy, green and social economy using instruments of ADVOCACY and RAISING AWARENESS;

  • create platform for sales and promotion of the local products and services via offline annual FAIR IARMARECO and online multivendor marketplace IARMARECO.MD;

  • launch the dialog about SOCIAL INVESTMENT and VENTURE PHILANTHROPY at national and international level

"Think of basic economics nowadays.
In the focus is the "ME" -
so, I start a business to make MY profit or to make MY ideas rise.
So, what Social Entrepreneurship does is changing the ME into WE.
And this relates to the relationship and trust among people, which is especially important here in our region and in Moldova where this connectedness has suffered a lot after the collapse of the Soviet Union".
