3 1. INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND Social enterprises as drivers of social innovation An important pillar of the European Union s ambitious socio-economic strategy for the next decade Europe 2020 is social innovation, which in essence is the process of developing new approaches or practices for resolving societal challenges through mobilising civil society actors to further inclusive, socially fairer and environmentally sustainable economic development and social change. This includes re-designing and reengineering business models and value chains, new relationships or collaborations between public, private and third sector organisations, and delivery mechanisms for public policies. In this context, social entrepreneurs and social enterprises 1 are drivers of change that operate on the basis of viable business models. They also generate jobs through activities that meet social needs in the context of sustainable and inclusive development. The financial, economic and fiscal crisis has drastic social consequences on Europe s young generation, which not only has been deprived of employment opportunities and lacks social security, but also is experiencing a crisis of values and a lack of confidence in the capacity of established institutions to tackle pressing social and environmental issues. Therefore, young people are particularly interested in engaging in civil society initiatives and in alternative business models such as social enterprises, which aim at generating social impact and social value. A specific barrier to developing and implementing social innovation initiatives is access to finance that suits the specific needs of social entrepreneurs and social enterprises as their driving forces. This is in particular relevant for organisations created or managed by young or early stage social entrepreneurs, Social entrepreneurship support under the EaSI programme On 6 October 2011, the Commission proposed a Programme for Social Change and Innovation 2, now named Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), which will among other things provide support for social enterprises in the programming period One of the objectives of the EaSI proposal is "to promote employment and social inclusion by increasing the availability and accessibility of microfinance for vulnerable groups and micro-enterprises, and by increasing access to finance for social enterprises." In introducing a specific financial instrument for social enterprises, the EaSI proposal translates into practice the action of the 90m euro European financial instrument announced under the Social Business Initiative: in the Commission proposal, within the Microfinance and social entrepreneurship axis, EUR million were earmarked for social enterprise support for start-up and existing social enterprises. The final figure depends on the outcome of the negotiations on the Multiannual Financial Framework Under the EaSI, the Commission aims at supporting the development of the impact investment market and facilitating access to finance for social enterprises by making 1 For the purpose of this Preparatory Action, the following terms are used synonymously: social business, social enterprise and social venture; social finance and impact investment Structural Funds and European Structural and Investment Funds 2 COM(2011)609 final 3

4 available hybrid financing for social enterprises which could take the form of a combination of equity, quasi-equity, loan instruments and grants. The total amount that a social enterprise can receive is EUR (state aid rules to be respected). Support under the programme will be limited to enterprises, not listed on the stock market, with a maximum of EUR 30m turnover (most social enterprises are smaller). For the implementation of the financial instrument, the Commission will cooperate with a financial institution. The selected organisation could provide funding to social enterprises directly or indirectly through intermediaries such as impact investment funds. Social entrepreneurship under the European Social Fund (ESF) The European Social Fund (ESF) 3 was established by the Treaty of Rome and is the longest existing Structural Fund. It is the main financial instrument through which the EU translates its strategic labour market, human resources development and social inclusion policy aims into action. The implementation takes the form of Operational Programmes (OPs) defined in coherence with national strategic reference frameworks. The OPs are drawn up by the Member State or any authority designated by the Member State. They include information on the priority axes and their specific targets (Article 37 of Regulation 1083/2006). For each OP, the Member State designates a number of authorities, including a Managing Authority. The responsibilities of the Managing Authority include ensuring that operations are selected for funding in accordance with the criteria applicable to the operational programme (Article 60 of Regulation 1083/2006). On 6 October 2011, the Commission proposed the new Regulations that will govern the European Social Fund in the period One of the foreseen investment priorities reads "Promoting the social economy and social enterprises" (Article 3) 5. Title IV of the proposed general regulation 6 widens the scope for the use of financial engineering instruments under the structural funds. Thus the new ESF can be expected to provide possibilities for the promotion of social entrepreneurship through financial instruments. Barriers in the social finance market Barriers to develop and strengthen the market for social finance have a different weight across Europe, the most relevant being: On the supply side: lack of suitable financial instrument in place; few investors prepared to invest; scarcity of significant public sector initiative; little experience in specifying a sustainable investment strategy and risk/return profile of a social finance fund; lack of capacities and tools to assess the viability of business plans and social impact, insufficient quality of investment propositions, absence of market facilitators (such as qualified intermediaries and market places) or business angels etc. 3 In the programming period the ESF is governed by the following Regulations: Council Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006, Regulation (EC) No 1081/2006, Commission Regulation (EC) No 1828/2006, available at: 4 COM(2011) 607 final /2, 5 Ibid. 6 COM(2011) 615 final/2 4

5 On the demand side: insufficient orientation on capital markets, but on the grant economy; legal structures which discourage the attraction of (quasi-) equity; lack of transparency of the market for social finance; insufficient experience in making proposals for external financing, or for combining different sources and types of finance (e.g. grants/loans); costs of getting investment ready; insufficient infrastructures /business development services/ incubators, etc. European Parliament Preparatory Action The European Parliament recognised the need to overcome these barriers through smart action and asked the Commission to implement this preparatory action, working with potential finance providers (in particular managing authorities for structural fund programmes, notably those financed by the ESF) and financial intermediaries in a limited number of pilot regions. The preparatory action is aimed at helping develop and establish feasible, suitable and reliable schemes or funds providing equity or mezzanine funding (including venture philanthropy). The European Parliament expected the results of these learning pilots to be beneficial for the implementation of the relevant Europe 2020 flagship initiatives, notably Youth on the Move, An agenda for New Skills and Jobs, Innovation Union and the European Platform against Poverty and Social Exclusion, and for preparing the ground for an effective use of the ESF and other funds after The preparatory action will be implemented within the meaning of Article 54(2) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No. 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October A total budget of EUR 1 million has been earmarked for this purpose. 5

6 2. OBJECTIVES THEME PRIORITIES General objectives The objective of the preparatory action is to identify, develop, promote and disseminate the good practice of national, regional or local governments and of financial intermediaries in assisting young social entrepreneurs at times of high youth unemployment. As such, the preparatory action will contribute to realising the potential of young and social entrepreneurship, emphasised also in the Commission s Social Business Initiative 2011, Annual Growth Survey 2011, as well as in the Communications Towards a job-rich recovery 2012 and Social Investment for Growth and Cohesion More precisely, this preparatory action aims to support the development of an impact investment market that would enable more social enterprises to take on repayable finance for developing and scaling their innovative business model: Through institution and capacity building with committed actors to boost the supply of social finance, and By facilitating and preparing access to finance for social enterprises through capacity building that generates effective demand for social finance by developing their investment readiness. The main task will be to develop and establish feasible, suitable and reliable financial instruments (schemes or funds providing equity or mezzanine funding, including venture philanthropy). In doing so, the beneficiary will explore and test effective ways of establishing, consolidating, sustaining and linking social finance schemes and instruments, organize learning on what works and how, as well as what does not work, and why. The Preparatory Action is addressed to social enterprises in their early stages, and to social enterprises started or developed by young people that have the potential for realising innovative solutions with a clear social and environmental impact, scaling their innovative approach, or for transferring their approach for replication in particular to young entrepreneurs. Thus, the preparatory action will pave the way for a swift uptake of EU social finance instruments after 2014 (notably the EaSI instrument and financial instruments under the European Structural and Investment Funds) by the creation of a pipeline of demand of impact investment actors for partnerships with the EaSI instrument to share risk, improve capitalization, and build capacity, in particular from Member States with less developed impact investment markets; experimenting with different models to develop the supply and demand side of the social finance market, which will provide a sound basis for fine-tuning the capacity building component of the EaSI instrument to promote social entrepreneurship; learning from good practice in developing and enhancing social finance across the Union, through organized sharing and disseminating of expertise and experience, and through presenting practical examples that demonstrate how (public-private) partnerships can effectively boost the supply of social finance through investing 6

7 in or complementing suitable financial products, as well as the demand through assisting social enterprises in getting investment ready. In order to achieve these objectives, the Commission will have to work together with potential finance providers and financial intermediaries in a limited number of pilot regions. The preparatory action will show ways in which support for young and social entrepreneurship can be most effectively incorporated into regional, urban or local development strategies. Special focus will be on the use that could be made, in the period, of EU financial instruments, in particular the Structural Funds. Specific objectives In order to take into account the variety of market situations in different Member States, the call offers several strands. Each of them addresses a specific configuration of barriers. Strands A, B and C act on the supply side of social finance, strand D on the demand side. For all strands, the focus should be on social ventures that aim at social impact, are financially sustainable, want to scale up (including through franchise) and, for that purpose, want to raise between EUR and EUR Strand A: Establishment of social finance partnerships This strand is particularly relevant for actions in countries in which the social finance market is not developed yet. It aims at addressing situations in which no suitable social finance instrument is in place, with a lack of investors prepared to launch or participate in a financial instrument. Although there is little experience in specifying a sustainable investment strategy and risk/return profile of a social finance instrument, there is some openness amongst potential investors and/or public bodies to contribute to establishing a suitable finance instrument. In order to explore options to close the gap in supply of social finance for innovative social enterprises and to mobilise and commit potential investors and stakeholders to cooperate, the grant aims at reducing the risk of engaging in the first steps towards a social finance instrument by facilitating the development of a consortium and commitment to act. It is also meant to encourage learning from good practice examples and expertise that can guide the formation of this partnership. Strand B: Establishment of social finance instruments and mechanisms This strand is particularly relevant for actions in countries with a relatively low level of development of the social finance market. It aims at addressing situations in which there is no suitable social finance instrument in place and potential investors and intermediaries lack expertise that can guide the drafting of contractual agreements needed for setting up a financial instrument. In order to mobilise and commit potential investors and stakeholders to act and to cooperate with a view to setting up a financial instrument, the grant is meant to reduce the risk of innovation in the social finance market by facilitating the acquisition of specific expertise in this field. Strand C: Establishment of collaborative funding models for social enterprises 7

8 This strand is particularly relevant for actions in countries in which different types of actors are already operating in the social finance market, but in isolation. As a result, these different types of social finance providers (foundations, social investors, public authorities, notably ESF managing authorities) apply a broad range of incoherent and unrelated eligibility criteria return expectations, conditions for repayment, requirements for accounting and reporting etc. In addition, there is a lack of transparency which makes it difficult for social entrepreneurs to develop an efficient mix of funding sources. The absence of suitable platforms, market facilitators (such as qualified intermediaries and market places) or business angels has prevented cooperation between investors, donors and public authorities. In order to improve the availability and effectiveness of suitable and needs-oriented financial instruments for social enterprises, this strand aims at mobilising and committing potential investors, donors and providers of business development services to co-operate with a view to finding innovative approaches to providing finance to social enterprises. Strand D: Development of investment readiness support for social enterprises This strand addresses the insufficient investment-readiness of social enterprises. Even in countries where there is a large pool of capital willing to invest in social enterprises, investments often remain complicated as social enterprises are not "investment ready". This can be explained sometimes by their low interest in repayable financial instruments due to an orientation towards the so-called grant economy, but also by a lack of necessary documents such as impact reports or business plans and insufficient experience in making proposals for external financing, or for combining different sources and types of finance (e.g. grants/loans). In many countries, the quality and quantity of start-up and business development services for social enterprises (incubators etc.) is unsatisfactory. In order to generate a pipeline of social enterprises prepared to access social finance, including under the EaSI programme and the future structural funds, this strand aims at improving the offer of specialised, experienced quality assistance and advice that help address social enterprises' weak capacity in acquiring external financing or for combining different types of finance. 8
