Estonian Social Enterprise Network

‘Social enterprise’ – what does it mean for Estonians?
Currently, members of our network accept a definition which encompasses a wide circle of meanings and is quite flexible. Social purpose forms the heart of our definition of social enterprise, other important aspects include having a sustainable business model and the requirement to reinvest surpluses. According to our definition, there are many social enterprises in Estonia – a wide diversity really. Services provided by social entrepreneurs vary from telemarketing to support services for people with special needs and to activating local communities by renovating and finding new use for old manor houses.

Here you`ll find an article about social enterprise movement in Estonia.

If you want to contribute to changing the world through our project – for example as a social entrepreneur, volunteer, financial or nonfinancial supporter, academic researcher etc. – let us know!
