Cycle on Social Entrepreneurship

 

Overview

Social entrepreneurship and social innovation are at the heart of the Dialogue Café Association mission. The recommendations received during the sessions organised in 2015 on women´s empowerment through creative industries and on creative hubs and entrepreneurship as vehicle for social change, and in 2016 on incubation models for social and creative entrepreneurship: sharing knowledge and testimonials, gave us the opportunity to identify the need of organising follow-up activities focused social entrepreneurship. Activities including exchanges, networking opportunities, trainings, conferences and seminars.

In this framework and with the aim of promoting global exchanges and networking opportunities, as well as strengthening youth capacities and skills on social entrepreneurship, a cycle on social entrepreneurship will be implemented in 2017. The cycle will address challenges and issues previously identified by the participants and partners of Dialogue Café Network.

With this project we aim at stregthening youth entrepreneurs capacities, developing networking opportunities, promoting global exchanges, identifying good practices, addressing the needs of social entrepreneurs and developing a global community on social entrepreneurship around Dialogue Cafe Network.
