Policy Guide to Scaling Social Innovation
1 May 2013 at 10:53 am

The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship in the US has launched a Policy Guide to Scaling Social Innovation offering policy tools and initiatives it says are currently being implemented by governments around the world.

The Policy Guide – a collaborative effort between the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, InSight at Pacific Community Ventures, the Initiative for Responsible Investment at Harvard University, and the SK Group – presents a framework for policy action, drawing from 14 case studies of policy tools and initiatives from around the globe.

In addition, the Policy Guide profiles twenty social innovation models from the Schwab Foundation network, tackling challenges in health, education, employment, rural development, and urban development.

“The profiles describe how successful social enterprises achieve outsized social impact and provide governments, intermediaries and budding social entrepreneurs with a wealth of ideas on how to generate social impact in specific issue areas,” Hilde Schwab, the Co-Founder and Chairperson of the Schwab Foundation said.

“The fact that there is so much policy experimentation under way around the world indicates just how much progress there has been over the past two or three years.

“Many governments are truly beginning to recognize the potential of social entrepreneurship and are constructively engaging with all of the relevant stakeholders to deliver on the sector’s promise.”

The Guide was launched at the recent World Economic Forum’s regional Latin America meeting.
