Emprender para Cambiar aims to promote social entrepreneurship by bringing to Spain programmes that are already working in other countries
Foster social entrepreneurship in Spain by bringing in the country 5 solutions of social innovation that have proven successful in other countries, in order to inspire the most important actors of the sector to create new projects, and set the basis and the commitment for making Spain a more entrepreneurial country.
This is the goal of Emprender para Cambiar, an event Ashoka is organizing in Madrid on 13-14 November, together with Fundación Ico and Sap España.
The selected Ashoka entrepreneurs work in five areas (youth, education, elderly people, support to entrpreneurship and inclusion) and have found five solutions that are already working in other countries : youth integration in the workplace, enterprise education, work and social inclusion of people over 45 and support to entrepreneurs and microentrepreneurs.
Participants will listen and learn from the experiences of these 5 social entrepreneurs and will be able to work with them on specific projects to achieve real change.
The event, that will feature successful entrepreneurs such as Catherine Hoffman and Carlos Barrabés , is divided in public conferences, or Change Talks (read the programme here) and Change Points, or working groups.
