Empowering innovation and entrepreneurship skills on social entrepreneurs

Social innovation is about coming up with new responses to societal needs. Social enterprises are not necessarily innovative if they only offer conventional support but might become it if they combine societal, environmental or community goals with an innovative approach, introducing new ideas to tackle social needs.

The INNO4CHANGE project harnesses the potential of social entrepreneurs by developing their innovation, entrepreneurship and business skills, supporting them to be more business and innovation-oriented and generating an effective social impact. The project also empowers VET professionals who work with them to integrate these topics in their curricula.
