The Collaborate for Impact regional launch event took place from 9 to 11 June 2021. It explored how social entrepreneurship and social investment are developing in the Eastern Partnership countries and Russia. The event also introduced the Collaborate for Impact project, its partners, and what is planned for the coming years.
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.
The Event brought together diverse stakeholders from the region, who are either already implementing some forms of social investment and social entrepreneurship, or are interested to engage in the topic.
