In collaboration with Católica-Lisbon, the EIB Institute has developed a series of webinars aimed at social entrepreneurs called “Social Innovation, Scaling, and Impact” (follow the link to see all the webinars). Throughout 2018 and 2019, numerous webinars were organised on topics of interest for social entrepreneurs to help them scale their impact further. The webinars are delivered by international-oriented speakers with deep expertise, in both academia and practice, in social entrepreneurship, fundraising and impact investing.

The webinar on Strategies for Scaling Impact was hosted by Professor Filipe Santos, Dean of Católica-Lisbon and Programme Director and Chaired Professor of Social Entrepreneurship, social innovator and mentor of social entrepreneurs.

The webinar gave social entrepreneurs a map and tools to plan their scaling strategy. The life cycle of social innovations was presented and attendees discussed different strategies available for social entrepreneurs to Scale Impact.
