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.

In this webinar led by Prof. Filipe Santos with Hugo Aguiar, CEO of SPEAK, the focus was on how best to scale social innovation across a country and across Europe using a social franchising model. Hugo Aguiar, CEO of SPEAK shared his experiences, challenges and learnings from scaling SPEAK across Europe.
