SoUK·LB – Social Enterprise Hub is an initiative of the British Embassy of Beirut that aspires to strengthen and promote the social enterprise sector by supporting scalable social enterprises that seek to create transformational social or environmental change for the benefit of society. The pilot of this initiative will be implemented by DAI, Alfanar and AltCity Impact.
The SoUK·LB pilot aims to demonstrate the viability and potential of the social enterprise model to deliver social and economic impact in Lebanon. This is done through seed-financing, training and mentorship which will support the development of a pipeline of high impact social enterprises at the idea, early and growth-stages. It is also raising awareness of social enterprises and engaging existing ecosystem partners and key stakeholders to develop an impactful social enterprise sector.
Nineteen applicants have been selected and are currently being provided with training, mentorship and grants. You can visit the Social Enterprise page for more details on the applicants and you can click here to download the SoUK·LB factsheet.
