Social Franchising Conference 2

We, the Members,  at the second Europeans Social Franchising Network (ESFN) worked on the growth of social franchising at our second conference at Sweden

We were working collectively on our work focused on three areas 

  • Social franchisors – was a unique opportunity to network, share experiences and learn from some of our leading Member’s;
  • Policy makers and funders – finding out about the impact of social franchising and how we supported to create more jobs and a better society;
  • Social entrepreneurs – a limited number of social enterprise were supported to become social franchisors.

At the conference there where over 70 people attending with 25 social franchisor Members.

Members also held a meeting on the day before the conference.


The conference on May 13 2014 was organised by Coompanion Göteborgsregionen and ESFN at Göteborg, Sweden.
