    Goals / Remit

    European Network is the network for social entrepreneurs and impact-driven leaders. Our members (+30) bring together their expertise, good practices and lessons learned from over 21 countries in Europe and neighbouring states. Our members are social enterprise federations, universities and training institutes, social investors, frontline NGOs and social enterprises. Together we contribute towards shaping a new type of economy – one that puts at its core sustainable development for both people and the environment.

    Significant progress has been made to reduce income inequalities in Europe, but there remain considerable impediments for many marginalised groups. For more than a decade, Euclid Network has been shaping the future of the world’s economy through our work with social enterprises and social entrepreneurs. Our mission is to create a global reality where businesses make decisions not solely based on profits, but instead the social and environmental impact their services have on communities.

    We envision a world in which the social and solidarity economy is the worldwide standard, rather than the exception. Everything we do stems from this vision. With our members and partners, the projects, policy advocacy, and partnerships we undertake are focused on developing and growing a diverse and collaborative network of social impact practitioners that contributes to all seventeen of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Together, we collaborate to:

    - Create connections between leaders in the impact and social enterprise ecosystem
    - Share and produce leadership, professional and entrepreneurial know-how
    - Influence European policy and funding and strengthen members’ and network participants’ EU engagement
    - Raise the visibility and understanding of social enterprise in business, academia, government, and wider society

    - we currently have 24 member organisations from 13 different countries.

    Our vision is to see social enterprise and civil society empowered to drive positive change.

    Our strategic objectives for the years 2018-2022:
    1. Support implementation of European policies in the social enterprise finance market with a focus on the demand side

    2. Reinforce the capacity of the network's members to empower social enterprises to access the social finance market and to repay social finance thanks to a sustainable business model

    3. Voice the concerns and expectations of social enterprises and potential future social entrepreneurs, including disadvantaged groups

    4. Provide high-quality data and research on developments of social enterprise finance with a focus on the demand side

    Other activities

    Our principal activities in 2019/2020 so far were spread across 3 main themes: social entrepreneurship, leadership and peer exchange, and social innovation.

    The principal activity of the company continues to be developing, connecting and supporting social entrepreneurs and third sector leaders in Europe, to see a vibrant social enterprise finance market across Europe in 2021 in which the demand and supply side are better matched.

    EN is initiating the 4-year EaSI strategy. We see social investment as a significant opportunity to empower civil society organisations and social enterprises to drive positive change – we believe this has a financial dimension and a capacity-building dimension. The strategy is built around 4 objectives: 1. Support the implementation of European policies in the social enterprise finance market with a focus on the demand side
    ; 2. Reinforce the capacity of the network’s members to empower social enterprises to access the social finance market and to repay social finance thanks to sustainable business models; 3. Voice the concerns and expectations of social entrepreneurs and potential future ones, including disadvantaged groups; 4. Provide high-quality data and research on developments on social enterprises finance with a focus on the demand side

    EN and its 8 partners organised 135 exchanges for entrepreneurs in 2017-2018 (40 for social entrepreneurs) under the SEEDplus project (Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs).

    EN is leading the EU3Leader project (Erasmus+) to develop a European framework of entrepreneurial competences for third sector leaders. Together with 5 partners (academic and practice) and expert leaders from across Europe, we are developing training materials and an online knowledge centre.
    EN has so far implemented PeerEx programmes in Kosovo and Poland (building on previous experience in Macedonia and Hungary, both with a focus on women entrepreneurship and social enterprise/CSO leadership.
