Social Entrepreneurship Summit 2024

Full Text Sharing

The Social Entrepreneurship Summit (SES) is an event that brings together individuals from various sectors such as academia, business, government, and social entrepreneurship to collaboratively address some of society’s most challenging issues. The summit aims to foster collaboration and provide hands-on support to social entrepreneurs and other ecosystem partners. SES is powered by ELANET, an international university centred ecosystem in support of social entrepreneurs,

The 2024 Social Entrepreneurship Summit comes for the first time to Europe and will be hosted by the University of National and World Economy in Sofia. After 5 successful editions, the summit has attracted the interest of over 1000 participants from around the world, including those attending in person and online. Our most recent summit was held in Cartagena, Colombia with more than 100 participants attending from different countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, North and Latin America. Alongside the summit, we also host the Social Entrepreneurship Fair, a parallel event that provides local social entrepreneurs with an opportunity to showcase their projects, sell their products, exchange ideas with participants, and receive feedback on how to further develop their ventures while increasing their impact.

We are proud to present the SES2024 edition “Strategies for Stronger Social Impact”. We look forward to engaging with academics and practitioners in discussing different micro, meso, and macro-level elements, processes, resources, and actors required to design and implement suitable strategies to maximize social impact. In our current times, where we are facing the post covid global shock, and amidst several international conflicts, this topic has become quite relevant and sound. This summit will open the space for debating and constructing ideas on how to develop further ecosystems that can support more sustainable, resilient and longslasting business models of social enterprises.
