The workshop was a unique collaboration between Britain’s leading modern university – Coventry University, led by its award winning social enterprise centre (CUSE) and the leading British and international Social Value organisations – Social Value UK (SVUK) and Social Value International (SVI). The workshop responded to the Mexican Government’s belief that to tackle the economic and social development challenges that the country faces requires innovative and financially sustainable initiatives which intentionally look to solve social or environmental problems. This has led, in part, to an increasing interest in developing social enterprise with new programmes from the Mexican government and private sector to fund social entrepreneurs. The workshop aimed to address the challenges that Mexican social enterprises face of being pioneers and in particular two issues relevant to the Newton Fund PDE programme: 1. strengthening the human capital in Social Entrepreneurship through flexible, practical and interactive programmes that fit the specific needs of policy makers, mentors and ultimately social entrepreneurs. 2. developing and implementing a system that will allow policy makers, mentors and social entrepreneurs to monitor and measure the social and environmental impact of their public policies or enterprises.
