Social entrepreneurship in the Republic of Moldova is in the early stages of development, and in the last ten years, about 48 social entrepreneurship initiatives have been launched, of which only four have obtained official status of social enterprise and insertion. Although the legal regulatory framework of social entrepreneurship in the country is sufficiently explicit, the practical application of these provisions is still challenging.
Based on the current situation, one of the priorities of the EU4Youth EUnlocking project is to facilitate information and good practice exchanges, receive valuable advisory assistance from experts, peer reviews and mutual learning of social entrepreneurs in the Republic of Moldova. In this context, the project is launching a series of information sessions on the practical aspects of applying the legislative provisions moderated by experts and practitioners in the field.
The first virtual information session is about the most popular topic: Obtaining the status of social enterprise in the Republic of Moldova
Time: 14:00, 23 September 2021 (local time).
Please register for the event here by 22 September 2021.
The project invites you to benefit from the opportunity to find out from experts and practitioners how to obtain step by step the status of social enterprise in the Republic of Moldova: modification of the founding documents of the enterprise, submission of the documents to the National Commission for Social Entrepreneurship, registration of changes at the Public Services Agency, etc.
The EUnlocking project helps to foster the social entrepreneurial potential of young people in Moldova and Ukraine by establishing a favourable ecosystem for social enterprises, as well as by inspiring and supporting more young social entrepreneurs to develop and sustain their innovative solutions to the promotion of social inclusion and environmental sustainability across both countries. The project is funded by the European Union under its EU4Youth Programme.
