Handbook for Social Enterprises in Indonesia
DBS Foundation partnered UKM Center Universitas Indonesia (Center of Small Medium Enterprises, Universitas Indonesia) to develop a handbook on Social Entrepreneurship that covers useful information and practical guidance for those who are interested in starting their enterprise and address social concerns in Indonesia. The handbook was made possible through a series of discussions and interviews with the Social Entrepreneurship players (entrepreneurs, incubators, etc.) across the country. Through this book, we aim to not only enlighten the readers with the concept, but also to encourage those with the calling to make a difference to use the necessary know-how to initiate their social start-ups.
The handbook (currently available in Bahasa) can be downloaded here.
