Welcome to the launch of the Irish Social Enterprise Network website, socent.ie. We are back (formerly Social Enterprise.ie), and we are here to help in the development of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship in Ireland.
We have a vision: an Ireland where the potential of social enterprises to contribute to economic development and strong communities has been fully realised – we want to make social enterprise work in Ireland.
The Irish Social Enterprise Network is here to help support, network and connect social enterprises in Ireland, to get their idea off the ground or to take their social impact to the next level.
We are only just beginning to develop a thriving social enterprise sector here, but we can’t do it alone. We believe that everyone on the network can help in navigating the supports and the opportunities available.
- A pathway pointing people in the direction of supports available in Ireland
- Networking events around Ireland
- A directory of social enterprises in Ireland to increase trade and awareness
- A vibrant and active community online and offline
- News and Opinions on the sector
- Discussions, debates and supports
We have only been able to do that by listening to what members want and delivering what we can, to help. We have always wanted socent.ie to be an open and inclusive network for social enterprises, social entrepreneurs and social innovators and we are hoping that we deliver the best content most relevant to you.
But this is your network, free for you to contribute and change. So get involved, post your news, opinions and supports. This is your network. Welcome
