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.

This panel webinar was hosted by Frederico Fezas Vital, Social Entrepreneur in Residence and Adjunct Professor of Social Entrepreneurship at Católica-Lisbon, CEO of Junior Achievement Portugal. He discussed how failures are most of the times underestimated and represent a cause of shame.

This webinar focused on how failures can become successes and how to extract the lessons for the future.
