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
"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".
(Julian Gröger, EcoVisio)
