Dear friends and members of the epNetwork Community,

Just two weeks ago, the "empowering people. Network" launched SAMforSE, a new free self-assessment online-tool for the needs of social entrepreneurs including a personal business coaching program (voucher). "I already received a positive feedback from our colleagues in EWB Mexico that this will be very useful for them to improve the whole performance of the organization", Oliver Nachevski, one of our "empowering people. Award" jurors, explained. Watch the SAMforSE tutorial video included in this update and get started!

This update also turns the spotlight on our epNetwork members: Solarkiosk has launched a new Solar System in Accra, Ghana, and is helping divert BoP expenditures on unclean energy sources toward renewable clean energy services. More good news come from our network member Gonzalo Muñoz from TriCiclos, who has been nominated as finalist for the "Responsible Leaders Awards 2016" for offering efficient options to recycle waste. Further interesting reading material comes from the Inclusive Business Accelerator who interviewed Lisa Hanley, the academic coordinator of our recently published IRENE|SEE research project "Entrepreneurial solutions to social challenges" as well as from our friends from E4C who have searched the Solutions Librabry for their best technologies for farming in dry land
