Welcome to SERI
Social enterprises are the most passionate and dedicated enterprises in Ireland, applying innovative and impactful solutions to Irelands most hard-hitting social challenges. This is a dynamic, ethical and sustainable way of doing business.
SERI was born from the passion and knowledge within the sector, and a universally recognised need for a united voice. Formed by some of Irelands leading social enterprise practitioners and supporters, to champion for the sector and our members, both nationally and internationally.
We are a new beginning for Social Enterprise in Ireland.
We will grow this sector to benefit all our people and communities.
We will work shoulder to shoulder with local and national government to deliver.
We will connect private and social enterprise in a way that has never been done before.
But we need you!
"The best way to predict the future is to create it”.
