On March 7th, investment professionals, philanthropists, strategists and changemakers came together at the Royal Academy of Arts to discuss how to grow the social entrepreneurship ecosystem. Why social entrepreneurship? It offers sustainable solutions to unemployment, environmental degradation, and poverty.
This summer, social entrepreneurs across the NESsT portfolio participated in hands-on training and networked with business mentors, investors and peers through a series of retreats and workshops. Held in each country, these events gave enterprise leaders the opportunity to strengthen their business skills, exploring topics as varied as investment readiness, financial management best practices, marketing and social impact measurement.
