In October 2020, the EU programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) approved a project proposal from our Austrian client (EUR 526 000) aimed at launching a novel, catalytic financial instrument, accompanied by investment readiness and a capacity building programme.

In collaboration with 2 other organisations, our client will develop, test and finalise the financial instrument and a non-financial training programme targeting social entrepreneurs with a proven track record. This project will be implemented in 7 countries from the CEE region and will be personalised to their individual needs. 

The duration of the project is set to 24 months, starting from January 2021. At the end of the project the programme will be officially launched in front of key stakeholders and partners in order to ensure a multiplier effect and boost impactful investments.
