Social enterprises can play an important role in the development of the Bulgarian economy and have the potential for sustainable growth, integrating different social groups.
We support social entrepreneurs and put their problems at the national level.

Social enterprises can play an important role in the development of the Bulgarian economy and have the potential for sustainable growth, integrating different social groups. BCause is actively discussing the place, shape and appropriate incentive measures for social entrepreneurship in the Bulgarian context through our Coalition Social Forum in Bulgaria and as its representative in the permanent group on Social Economy at the Ministry of Labor and Social Policies.

We apply and develop our understanding of social enterprises in our own programs through the Rinker Entrepreneurship and Training Center.

Rinker Entrepreneurship and Training Center (since 2014)

Since 2014, the BCause Foundation has a Rinker Entrepreneurship and Training Center set up to promote education, lifelong learning and support entrepreneurship and business development in Bulgaria.

Rinker’s Challenge (since 2014) - a unique start-up entrepreneurship program for Bulgaria that includes racing and modular training. The winners receive a grant of up to BGN 20,000 and one-year support from mentors. The competition is once a year.

Sprouts - Programmes for Children and Youth (since 2016) - training and demonstration activities for the development of entrepreneurial culture, economic and financial literacy, accompanied by the gain of personal experience.

Social Enterprise in Bulgaria Forum (since 2014)

The Forum is an informal alliance of people and organisations working in the field of social entrepreneurship. It contributes to the exchange of information and policy-making, and puts the problems of social entrepreneurs on a national level. It was created on the initiative of the BCause Foundation and is coordinated by it.
