What is Elanet

Our platform aims at connecting social entrepreneurs and support organizations, thereby creating a robust network that upholds and inspires.

About our Platform

The ELANET-platform has the ambition to reinforce the support of social entrepreneurs. To achieve this goal, we have joined forces in a consortium of 17 partners and 35 associated partners from various organizations and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Europe (Belgium, Bulgaria, Austria and Italy) and Latin-America (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru). The ELANET-project is initiated and coordinated by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in Belgium. This platform will be structured in seven modules:

  1. SE cases to inspire
  2. SEs in need of support
  3. Support Partners 
  4. Volunteers
  5. Tools for mentors 
  6. Tools for SEs 
  7. Library
