COVID Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs

We need social entrepreneurs now, more than ever.

In April 2020, we came together with the World Economic Forum to co-initiate an alliance of 86 leading organisations supporting over 100,000 entrepreneurs. The Alliance was founded to mobilise support for social entrepreneurs on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.

Alliance
Members

These are the organisations that make our work possible with financial and pro-bono support.

The COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs coordinates support for social entrepreneurs in four key ways:

  • Assess and highlight needs across the members’ social enterprise portfolios.
  • Amplify and expand available financial support under a joint alliance dashboard and help social entrepreneurs to raise additional money to expand their work.
  • Coordinate non-financial support provided by companies and intermediaries, such as social procurement, legal services and technological support.
  • Advance joint communication efforts to advocate for appropriate fiscal and policy interventions relevant to social entrepreneurs.

“Social business is an incredible breath of innovation. We find new ways to produce our product. We look at the company from a society standpoint – inside out and include the idea of social value creation in strategic planning.”
