The European Commission  has published the Practical guide on designing and implementing initiatives to develop social finance instruments and markets .

The guide was authored by Eva Varga and Malcolm Hayday and is largely based on the experience of the pilot projects awarded under Call VP/2013/017 “Supporting the demand and supply side of the market for social enterprise finance”, as well as other similar initiatives.

The 3E4SE project, leaded by SEFEA and developed  in collaboration with FEBEA and its members Banca Popolare Etica and Ekobanken , is one of the projects that contributed to the realization of this study.

Designed for practitioners such as social enterprises, investors, social finance intermediaries, market builders and social enterprise support organisations, this publication will guide you step by step through the process of designing and implementing initiatives to develop social finance instruments and markets.
