The annual Lithuanian social entrepreneurs and social innovators community event is coming back on 7th May 2020! This year the Summit is focusing on social financing.

This annual dialogue event brings together social entrepreneurs, social innovators, policy makers, academics and relevant institutions in order to review progress on social entrepreneurship in Lithuania over the previous year and explore future growth opportunities.

As the community of social innovators grows, so does the number of new, innovative initiatives that create social or environmental change in a different way – creating new and more effective solutions. However, many new or existing social enterprises face a challenge due to a lack of investment or flexible instruments that would be more conducive to social innovation.

The seventh Summit invites you to discuss social finance practices that work in the rest of the world, and new tools that are being developed in Lithuania.

For the first time in seven years, the Social Enterprise Summit will go online and will be broadcast live throughout the day. This means that not only will you have the opportunity to learn about the social finance practices applied in the world or in Lithuania, but also to communicate, ask questions and discuss these with speakers with an international perspective.
The number of participants in the event is not limited, but registration is required to help us prepare the broadcast.
