We know that the first step of the journey is often the hardest one to take. We support social entrepreneurs from idea stage through to pilot stage.
Social Entrepreneurs Ireland's Core Beliefs
We seek out people with unique insight and scalable ideas to social problems. We offer them a deeper level of support to grow their impact through our vibrant community of changemakers.
When a social entrepreneur has taken the first steps, the following stage often requires a leap of faith. We support social entrepreneurs as they navigate this risky part of the journey.
For social entrepreneurs who have developed a scalable model, we help them to develop themselves and their organisations to deliver impact at scale through bespoke financial and non-financial supports.
Wrapped around all these pillars and across every stage of the journey is the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland community of alumni and supporters.
