What has been going on in Barcelona Social Business City?
After the program ended in 2017, we evaluated the results of the actions undertaken and activities implemented to make Barcelona a Social Business City.
An important result of the program was the birth of the Yunus Social Business Centre University of Barcelona, and of the Social Business City Barcelona association.
From the interviews we conducted among the social entrepreneurs the Program had involved, it emerged that nowadays Barcelona stimulates the development of new forms of entrepreneurship. Thanks to the Program, many young people are entering the world of social entrepreneurship with new ideas and valid goals.
The entrepreneurs were generally satisfied with the SBC Program and happy with the mentoring and support they received. They stressed the importance of cooperating with other enterprises and organizations as a source of mutual help and inspiration.
