Launch of the first regional online platform for the social enterprise sector in MENA
March 31, 2022
Euclid Network and its local partners announced the launch of se-mena.org – the first regional online platform for the social enterprise sector in MENA.
The platform was born out of an initiative in the scope of the EU-funded MedUP! project and currently features organisations from Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon.
The platform will be available in English, French and Arabic. It features the option to create an organisation profile for different SE key actors; provides a search function to identify and connect with relevant organisations; as well as a blog section. However, the se-mena team is already planning additional features to be added in the near future.
It aims at providing a convening platform and knowledge database for the social enterprise ecosystems in the MENA region. More specifically, its vision is to:
Break silos between key actors in the social enterprise ecosystem.
Increase the visibility of social entrepreneurship.
Foster partnerships and collaborations.
Facilitate access to services.
It also serve as a great resource for non-MENA actors to get a better understanding of the social enterprise ecosystems in the region, as well as to identify potential project partners, collaboration opportunities, etc.
