EVPA announces new conference supporter Social Entrepreneurs Ireland

Posted on by EVPA


EVPA is delighted to announce that Social Entrepreneurs Ireland joins The One Foundation as a general supporter for the 8th EVPA Annual Conference, taking place on 13-14 November 2012, Dublin, Ireland. Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is an outstanding organisation and one of the strongest supporters of change-makers in Ireland. We are therefore very happy to have them on board as this year’s conference will be looking at the question “Backing the change-makers in a time of uncertainty: can we do more?”.

Social Entrepreneurs Ireland supports people with new solutions to social problems in Ireland. They work intensively with social entrepreneurs to develop their organisations and increase the social impact of their work. Irish social entrepreneurs can get access to funding alongside in-depth technical and practical supports. Over the last 7 years Social Entrepreneurs Ireland has supported 150 social entrepreneurs, investing over €4 million in their projects, and providing significant additional supports. These in turn have directly impacted nearly 200,000 people across Ireland and created over 800 employment opportunities in the process.”
