4BUSINESS PLANNING/SOCIAL ENTERPRISES

We motivate civil society organizations to explore alternative avenues to access funding. The needs are too high and too urgent in some contexts but the resources are not there. Our expert team provides advice on business planning, to support the creation of social enterprises led by non-governmental organizations. The goal is generate profits to subsidize the social mission of the organization AND/OR the creation of development solutions, using positive business practices.
