The state of social entrepreneurship

Seforїs stands for "Social Entrepreneurship as a Force for more Inclusive and Innovative Societies". It is a multi-disciplinary research programme, funded by the European Commission, that investigates the potential of social enterprise in the EU and beyond to enhance the inclusiveness of societies through greater stakeholder engagement, promotion of civic capitalism and changes to social service provision. Seforїs combines insights from policy makers and social enterprise practitioners with cutting-edge academic research to build robust and novel evidence on social entrepreneurship.

We develop theoretical frameworks for inclusion and innovation processes in context, employ novel experimentation with social enterprises, build a unique international database of in-depth case studies, and test and validate conclusion using robust longitudinal survey data.
