What funding is available to changemakers in Finland and how would changemakers like to develop their funding strategies and revenue models?
This event presents the results from the Changemaker mapping carried out by Ashoka Nordic and Sitra, diving deeper into how changemakers and social entrepreneurs perceive the funding landscape. In our mapping, 70% of changemakers reported that lack of funding is a key obstacle for creating social impact. So what types of funding are currently available for changemakers and how are changemakers looking to diversify their funding options?
"We see this discussion also as a step towards the ideation of upcoming activities that we and other actors will organise when it comes to funding social innovation, as we think it is important to discuss how we can implement the recommendations in our mapping."
Watch an engaging discussion together with three experts in the field, all Changemakers themselves!
