The European Social Enterprise Monitor (ESEM) is the first social enterprise monitor at the European level. The main aim of the project is to communicate, support and promote the needs and interests of enterprises in the social and solidarity economy across Europe and beyond. This 2023-2024 edition will survey 31 countries in 26 languages.
ESEM gathers participants’ insights on social entrepreneurship and makes them available for decision-makers, government officials, investors, researchers and impact practitioners. Having more knowledge and a better understanding of the sector means that funding, as well as EU and national policies, can become better adjusted and more responsive to the needs of (aspiring) social entrepreneurs. More effective social finance and social enterprise will accelerate reaching the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
