Since 2011, Convergences publishes the Social Entrepreneurship Barometer which presents the key issues and trends of the social entrepreneurship sector in France and internationally and promotes best practices in the sector. It is aimed at the entire social entrepreneurship ecosystem – entrepreneurs, funders, catalysts and public authorities – and also targets professionals from related sectors, students and the media.
This 9th edition, entitled “Social and environmental entrepreneurs, spearheading tomorrow’s economy”, is based on an undeniable observation: the global pandemic has revealed the vulnerabilities of our socio-economic systems, and it is now essential to put all our strengths into building a more sustainable, just and resilient world. In this sense, the barometer carries a strong collective message: social and environmental entrepreneurs must become the pillars of this economy of tomorrow. The 2021 edition of the Barometer presents, through articles, interviews with SSE experts, debates and feedback, the levers to activate to accelerate the development of social and environmental entrepreneurship. Change of scale, partnerships for impact, social impact contracts, circular economy. These topics can be found at the launch of the new edition of the Barometer.
How has the crisis affected the relevance of impact measurement by social entrepreneurs? What specific measures to support social entrepreneurship and SSE have been adopted? What are the stages of scaling up, and how to get support? These topics are to be found in this 9th edition of the Social Entrepreneurship Barometer!
