Social Enterprise as a Resource in Regional Development
15 February 2018
11:15

Today in Russia, a new phenomenon has arisen in the entrepreneurial sphere — social enterprise. ‘Social enterprise’ is about the voluntary participation of entrepreneurs in solving acute social challenges, not with the goal of exacting maximum profit, but rather of achieving maximum social effect. A bill to reinforce the concept of social enterprise has now been developed and submitted to the Russian Federation Government. Comprehensive measures are being put in place to develop this area of entrepreneurship. Social enterprise is one of the priorities of current state social policy, and work in this area should be continued. What is the present status of social enterprise in Russia’s regions? How can the involvement of social entrepreneurs facilitate the resolution of acute social problems and regional development? What support measures are already being provided, and what others are needed? Is major business ready to provide support to social enterprise? How does Russian experience in social enterprise compare with global best practices?
