Our team consists of highly experienced consultants, coaches, mentors, and trainers, who are willing to support young social entrepreneurs to make the difference.
Solidarity: Solidarity is the fundamental value that characterizes the relationships and transactions among the organizations of Social & Solidarity Economy.
Mission: Every person and organization has a mission, and the fulfillment of this mission contributes to the building of a solidarity world.
What we want to do
We are launching our first Incubator Program in the beginning of March 2016 in Athens. The Social Entrepreneurship Incubator Program supports young unemployed people, who are willing to establish social enterprises and social innovations that give a solution to a social issue.
The purpose of the program is to contribute to youth unemployment reduction and development of social & solidarity economy.
The Incubator provides supporting and business consulting services, useful for the planning and establishment of start-up social enterprises. Apart from the support in entrepreneurship subjects, we focus on soft skills and teamwork development among the members of social enterprises.
We strongly believe, that cooperation and effective communication are vitally important factors of the success of social enterprises. Therefore, we implement innovative development methods, such as coaching & mentoring, and contemporary holistic methods like transformation game and systemic constellation.
The duration of the program is five months, from March until July 2016.
The Unemployment rate in Greece is more than 24%, which is the highest in Europe, while the Greek Youth Unemployment rate is more than 49%. Social Entrepreneurship is one of the solutions to create new jobs, especially for young educated people, and to turn the Greek economy to development.
Our services will help unemployed people to create social enterprises, and, while having a job, they will employ others and create products and services, that help the society.
So as a contributor, you will make a valuable difference for the society and show your solidarity with Greece.
