Priorities and funded actions

* Mobilising existing network(s) of mainstream business incubators to expand their outreach to inclusive and social entrepreneurship;
* Achieving a geographically balanced coverage of countries (North, South, East, West of Europe)

* “Business incubators” mean support organisations of which the main purpose is to promote business creation and entrepreneurship by offering relevant services such as training, workshops, business coaching and mentoring, business advice, networking opportunities and financing for potential start-up companies and micro entrepreneurs. These bodies can support the start-up as well as the scale-up of businesses;
* “Network of business incubators” means an established network, which among its members includes organisations fulfilling the above definition of business incubator. Consequently the call is open also to networks which include multiple types of member organisations;
* “Social entrepreneurship/social enterprises” mean businesses, of which the primary objective is to achieve positive social impact. Consequently they are subject to profit distribution limits and participatory governance principles;
* “Inclusive entrepreneurship” is an approach to ensure that all people, regardless of their background, have an equal opportunity to start and run their own businesses. It focusses on target groups that are under-represented in entrepreneurship, or that face greater barriers to business creation and self-employment, e.g. women, migrants, youth and the unemployed

Among financed actions
* Gathering, production and diffusion of relevant information materials;
* Study visits and exchange of good practices;
* Training activities, webinars, seminars, conferences, etc;
* Developing business support services for inclusive and social entrepreneurs, including toolkits, templates, manuals and other support material;
