Actions to boost the development of finance markets for social enterprises
Description of call
"Actions to boost the development of finance markets for social enterprises"
The objective of the call for proposals is to contribute to the development of a social finance market, by designing and launching financial instruments for social enterprises and, at the same time, generating effective demand for social finance among social enterprises by developing their “investment readiness”. Ultimately this should enable more social enterprises to take on repayable finance for developing and scaling up their business model. The call offers two strands:
  • Strand A: Establishment of social finance partnership
  • Strand B: Establishment of social finance instruments and mechanisms
