Our Impact

At the core of everything we do, is our commitment to finding and supporting people with innovative ideas to solve social problems.

When founded in 2004, SEI was the first organisation in Ireland explicitly dedicated to supporting social entrepreneurs. Since then, SEI has supported more than 550 social entrepreneurs across the country who are championing and driving solutions in areas such as mental health, housing, the environment and education.

SEI alumni have directly impacted the lives of millions of people throughout Ireland and have contributed significantly to creating employment opportunities.
