The project "Expanding Social Entrepreneur Consulting" is aimed at regional start-up consultants, chambers of industry and commerce, innovation and start-up centers, start-up consulting at universities and business development agencies.
Impact-driven founders are often faced with the challenge of finding tailored programmes and information on funding opportunities, contact persons and legal particularities. The planned measures are intended to give the first contact points for founders an in-depth introduction to the topic of social entrepreneurship with the aim of improving the advice given to Social Entrepreneurs and encouraging the provision of new support services.
The catalogue of measures contains:
- A handbook on concrete steps of action with detailed information for start-up advisors. For an adequate counselling of Social Entrepreneurs, the handbook also contains best practices with advice for specific needs (e.g. impact model, financing).
- A website as a central platform that offers an overview of available information and resources on topics such as funding opportunities, support organizations and best practices.
- One-day workshops in which the participants gain deeper insights into the topic and also have the opportunity to consolidate what they have learned in practical exercises. Furthermore they can network with multipliers from their own region.
