From 9th to 11th June, the Collaborate for Impact Regional Launch Event was an opportunity to explore how social entrepreneurship and social investment are developing in the Eastern Partnership countries and Russia, and to learn about challenges and opportunities to foster collaboration on these topics.
We gathered over 750 registrations with over 40 speakers for the event. During 3 days, participants representing social enterprises, civil society organisations, business and state institutions, had the opportunity to learn more to social impact investment. They also got familiar with the role of the business sector and government at the national level.
Practitioners of social investment shared case studies and best practices in collaboration with business or with public institutions. We also showcased examples from the Eastern Partnership countries and Russia, where different forms of social entrepreneurship and social investment are already taking place.
