Promoting Social entrepreneurship in Latam with Hystra, the SDC and New Ventures
Since 2014, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Ashoka, Hystra and New Ventures have joined forces to identify, promote and support social entrepreneurs in Latin America over a four-year period (2014-2018). Social entrepreneurship is still not mainstream in the general economy, but it is a growing field and yields high potential for addressing developmental problems in a more innovative and sustainable way. Yet, the field is lacking appropriate infrastructure and the enabling support ecosystems to develop to its full potential.
This is why this five-pillar program aims at supporting the selected social entrepreneurs with the following specific objectives:
- To address the challenges social entrepreneurs may face along their lifecycle,
- To consolidate the findings and spread the knowledge gained from this program, and
- To ultimately aim for Pro Poor Growth.
IMPACT OF THE PROGRAM
