By support organisation we are referring to any agency or individual that offers direct support to social enterprises to help improve products, services or processes related to all or any of the elements of a social enterprise’s triple bottom line (financial, social and environmental)
Support organisations are crucial to a successful social enterprise ecosystem, which, in turn, is important for social enterprise success. Acknowledgement of this point has seen partners in the Spark project reaching out to support agencies to help deliver elements of the Action Plan and indeed to help deliver elements of the Accelerator programme and mysocialstartup.eu
