Online incubator for social enterprises held in Ukraine

Together with their partners from 1to4 Foundation, SILab team held the Express Online incubator in June for the creation and development of social enterprises. 

During the first month of the war, SILab conducted a survey among social entrepreneurs to learn how many social entrepreneurs continued to work and were able to transform their activities considering the challenges of the war. At the same time, they saw that, in addition to long-standing social enterprises, new ones are being created, and they need knowledge for the further development of their enterprises.

21 teams passed the training, furthering their skills and knowledge through a number of sessions with mentors as well as sharing their experiences.  Five teams were selected to receive social investments in the form of smart grants ranging from 2,000 to 10,000 euros from the Ukrainian Social Venture Fund.
