NESsT in Brazil
Despite ongoing growth, marginalized communities in Brazil are deprived of economic opportunity, fair and stable income and access to basic services. Social Enterprises install capacities that help these communities to overcome these barriers in the long-term.
NESsT Brazil has evaluated 175 social enterprise ideas. Through rigorous tailored capacity support, it has helped over 55 organizations and entrepreneurs to develop sustainable business plans and has provided them with startup and incubation support. Today it manages a portfolio of seven social enterprises that are growing their operations to increase their impact.
