Social Economy at Dialogue Café 0 Reply

The definition of social innovation is associated with the creation of new ideas (products, services and models) that simultaneously respond to social needs and create new social relationships. These are innovations that are not only good for society but also increase society’s ability to act. Knowing that a social problem is a social condition that a segment of society sees as harmful to members of society and in need of correction, we find that it is increasingly emerging to encourage the creation of new projects, companies and sustainable jobs associated with the promotion of innovative business models with high social impact.

The Dialogue Cafe Association assumes that it is also a priority to encourage cooperation between the actors involved in the network, aiming to facilitate access to the sharing of good practices in the area of ​​promoting entrepreneurship.

So, in this session on social economics, it is intended to give participants an opportunity to clarify doubts and learn from others. The session will take place in the framework of the project EFES. The EFES project is developed under the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal Program (POCTEP) 2014-2020 and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).”

Cycle on Social Entrepreneurship

Social entrepreneurship and social innovation are at the heart of Dialogue Café Association mission. The recommendations received during the sessions organised in 2015 on women´s empowerment through creative industries and creative hubs and entrepreneurship for social change, and in 2016 on incubation  models for social and creative entrepreneurship: sharing knowledge and testimonials, gave us the opportunity to identify follow-up activities on social entrepreneurship.

In this framework a cycle of sessions on social entrepreneurship will be launched in 2017 with the aim of promoting global exchanges and networking opportunities as well as strengthening youth capacities and skills on social entrepreneurship. The cycle will address, once per month, a topic and challenge previously identified by the community and partners of Dialogue Café Network.

Session´s Overview

From ideas to implementation, social innovation initiatives are explicitly designed to meet a recognised social need, drive societal change by providing effective (than existing) solutions and empower beneficiaries by creating new roles, developing new communities, strengthening competences and focusing on their knowledge and capacities.

The application of social innovation strategies in the area of ageing is an interesting approach to tackle the challenges and opportunities of this 21st century main societal issue.

The objective of this session organised by Dialogue Café is in one hand, disseminate social innovation initiatives aimed at empowering elderly implemented in several and different countries; in other hand, provide to social entrepreneurs thinking on working in this field, inspiration and knowledge about good practices.

With this purpose, members of social innovation organisations working in the field of active-ageing and social entrepreneurs will be invited to join us and participate in this discussion.

Incubation models for social & creative entrepreneurship: Sharing knowledge and testimonials 0 Reply

A vibrant and diverse social enterprise incubation landscape has been rapidly evolving over the last years. Incubators and accelerators have been pioneers in successfully combining support services including mentoring, funding, business development and infrastructure, to support the emergence of innovative social enterprises and start-ups. In this framework, social and creative entrepreneurship has also found a place and the support from different specialised incubators. Variations in the focus of social incubators have also led to emergence of unique operating and financing models of these social enterprise incubators.
