Call for proposals EaSI 2019 - PROGRESS - Actions to boost the development of finance markets for social enterprises VP/2019/015 Open!

Objectives

The objective of the call for proposals is to contribute to the development of a social finance market, by designing and launching financial instruments for social enterprises and, at the same time, generating effective demand for social finance among social enterprises by developing their “investment readiness”.

Actions
