There are approximately 11m social enterprises across the world, according to the most comprehensive data ever gathered, published in a report today by the British Council and Social Enterprise UK.
The research, More in Common: The Global State of Social Enterprise, for the first time aims to identify how many social enterprises – businesses driven by a social or environmental purpose – exist globally.
In the report foreword, Dr François Bonnici, director of the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship and head of social innovation at the World Economic Forum, said: “This historic report demonstrates how social enterprise is one of the largest movements of our time.”
