We spent some very exciting days in Mexico City, where we held and participated a range of events alongside the Global Social Business Summit 2014 (GSBS).
Our research network IRENE|SEE was presenting partner at the Grameen Social Business Research Conference and highlighted the panel discussion
"Cultivating an Ecosystem for Social Entrepreneurs – The role of Investors, Researchers and Philanthropy" which started with “Insights from an exploratory study on social enterprises and social investors in Colombia, Mexico, Kenya and South Africa"conducted by our IRENE|SEE researchers.
We meet lots of old friends and welcomed new members to the network at the "empowering people. Workshop" which focused on the important topic of impact measurement. To find the respective own measurement strategy is a learning journey. And even if there might not exist one ultimate truth, the knowledge-exchange between the participants was very lively and also very open-minded. Finally we had the chance to attend the GSBS and present some of the products of our "empowering people. Network" members to a large community within the Social Business/Social Entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Experience some of the moments of Mexico!
Hasta luego y gracias por todo!
