Why online learning for social enterprises?

There are over 170 Million social entrepreneurs globally and growing. More and more, consumers are choosing to buy from businesses that put people and planet first. That means more and more companies are trying to find the tricky balance between purpose and profit.

At the same time, technology is causing a revolution in the way that we learn. It means that social entrepreneurs no longer have to wait to enroll, spend endless hours in the classroom or endure training that is either old news, too advanced or irrelevant. With online learning and coaching, they can find the answers they need quickly, and build their social enterprise fast.

Managing Director of the Social Enterprise Institute, Jonathan Coburn commented:

“This is a truly significant partnership. This collaboration will enable us to ensure that social entrepreneurs – regardless of location, background or starting point – have access to knowledge and tools they need to build life-changing social enterprises”.

Gerry Higgins, Founding Director or SEWF said:

“The SEI platform of online learning and coaching is an ideal fit with our mission and vision at SEWF. We look forward to working collaboratively with SEI to introduce this exciting new digital platform globally”.
