Social entrepreneurship is gaining increasing momentum and interest all around the world. Social models are switching from charity-based organizations to revenue-generating and sustainable structures. Moreover, funders are investing in social for-profit companies in emerging markets to generate positive impact in sectors like education, health and access to finance. While success stories exist throughout the world and social entrepreneurs networks are being developed in the Arab region, social entrepreneurship and impact investing are still not developed in Tunisia, staying far below the potential, the needs and the opportunities of the country.
The Tunisian Center for Social Entrepreneurship is the first big step towards unlocking social entrepreneurship in Tunisia, with four major areas of focus:
- Educating about social needs and innovations/ promoting social entrepreneurship;
- Identifying and incubating social innovation in Tunisia;
- Advocating for a better legislation to encourage such initiatives;
- Strengthen exposure to international social entrepreneurship networks, funds and investors.
We look forward to your participation, your support and your social business ideas!
