Social entrepreneurship is blossoming in Indonesia. It is viewed as an impactful alternative approach to solve economic and social problems. Yet, there are limited resources available to assist up-and-coming social entrepreneurs in founding their social businesses and sharpening impacts.
Hivos believes building a strong knowledge basis for business development is the key. Through the IDEA JAM program, Hivos’ support of frontrunner social entrepreneurs begins at the idea stage. Together with the Depok-based coworking space Code Margonda, Hivos designed comprehensive capacity building tools covering topics such as business development, sustainable impact, gender inclusivity measurement and so on. The tailor-made tool is a valuable resource for emerging social entrepreneurs in translating their business idea into a business-ready venture.
Hivos is committed to open the social entrepreneurship opportunity for all, particularly to potential youth in marginalized communities living in peri-urban areas around large cities. Therefore, Hivos shares our in house-made IDEA JAM tools to be used responsibly by emerging social entrepreneurs or by incubators or accelerators. The tools consist of a module and a worksheet. A report highlighting participants’ journey and study result is also shared. For inclusivity purpose, these documents are made available in both Bahasa Indonesia and English.
