The EU Sector project is made up of a partnership of a technical university, a municipal governorship and five social businesses and social business support providers. Their collective aim is to provide an online resource that supports the work of social business support providers. This is the online incubator which is the website that you have accessed. Within this site you will find the research study that was carried out to identify the needs of social business; the state-of-the-art report that commentates on the status of social enterprise in Dresden/ DE, Manchester/ UK, Cyprus, Valencia/ ES, Lisbon/ PT, Lithuania and Aydin/ TR.
The Social Business Support Model includes useful information on funding, legal structures, leadership and management and marketing. The platform content is dynamic and welcomes participation and additional information and suggestions for improvement. It is becoming the focus of a growing number of social entrepreneurs across Europe and we hope it will generate pan-European projects and partnerships in the future.
