In the last 10 years I designed labor market programs implemented by non governmental organisation and covered supports for vulnerable people for LM integration. In this field the programs by our design supported more than 700 social enterprise with grants and refundable financial resource. So I have seen development of many social enterprise and the sunset of some. I worked in the relevant ministries as planning adviser (ESF, ERDF) so I can contribute for the work of the platform with a governmental, and supporter/investor aspect.
I am able to share my experiences, give some technique for lobby and explain the EU context of social enterprises. I help you to plan your financial framework, design healthy composition of incomes, state aid and loans, and communicate your social and business goals for policy makers and investors.
As I see the organization of a social enterprise is an exciting challenge but this form of business brings a more peaceful future for us.
Dear Judee, I am honored your interest. As I mentioned we designed and monitored the programs as labor market integration program, so the main indicators have LM relations. In the framework of Social Renewal Operation Program were app. 350 social cooperatives supported and they have trained 2800 disadvantage people and created 2600 new job for vulnarable groups. In current programing period more than 400 supported social enterprises create more than 2800 new job. These key indicators are measured, so other information, indirect/additional impacts can be measured with adhoc methods.
"700 social enterprise with grants and refundable financial resource." I'm curious how this goes impact-wise. Please share more @Zsolt.
Dear Zsolt, it is very interesting what you wrote. Did you support program for disabled persons as ? Would you share your experiences on these innovations?
Welcome Zsolt! Looking forward to hearing more from you!
