ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS: THE EFESEIIS SURVEY!

ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS: THE EFESEIIS SURVEY!

In line with EFESEIIS project’s objectives, 1100 Social Entrepreneurs will be interviewed in the 11 partner countries with the purpose of gaining insight on their background, focusing on the motivations, enabling factors and constraints that social enterprises face.

The survey will be submitted to social entrepreneurs identified in each country and will include questions related to the general environment in which social entrepreneurs operate in order to assess their relations with their local area.

Thus, the questionnaire represents the main tool for investigating the experiences of social entrepreneurs, analysing the innovative practices introduced by their organizations with the purpose to support the creation of more inclusive and innovative societies.

The survey started on the 15th of June and integrates the recommendations gained during the First Stakeholders’ Workshop, which was held in Warsaw (Poland) on the 16th and 17th of February, 2015.

The questionnaire results will be published by February 2016, and will provide a deeper understanding of the differences in behaviour of social entrepreneurs compared to traditional entrepreneurs.
