We are a social enterprise. Our mission is to

develop social enterprises in Sri Lanka

The Need

Social Enterprise sector in Sri Lanka is growing. We estimate there are thousands of entities in Sri Lanka which can be recognised as social enterprises. Although a few companies already identify themselves as social enterprises, many others do not know they may be running a social enterprise. Most social enterprises are at start-up stage, while more and more charities are being transformed into social enterprises.

They have different needs ranging from business modelling, planning, sales, working capital, product design etc. They need impact investment in order to scale up rapidly. Their social, environmental and economic impact need to be measured and reported against global standards. They also need to be recognised and rewarded for their achievements. Policies and systems need to be developed to support the growth of the emerging social enterprise sector in Sri Lanka.

The Vision

Our vision is to have a “thriving social enterprise sector in Sri Lanka by 2025″, with thousands of legally recognised social enterprises, employing hundreds-of-thousands of people, and delivering measured social, environmental and economic impact.

In order for us to get there, we need to fulfill the above needs step-by-step, working together with different partners, and be committed to a long term plan. Social Enterprise Lanka is the Hub pulling together local and international stakeholders, and aligning their efforts towards our shared vision.
