CSES , the Center for Social Entrepreneurship in Sweden, is Sweden’s first incubator for social entrepreneurs. The mission of CSES is to stimulate and support the advance of social innovation in order to promote the development of new companies and organizations that solve pressing social problems. CSES was initiated by SU Incubator and later run as a private nonprofit organization. Axfoundation was part of funding the initiative.
CSES defines social entrepreneurship as “Entrepreneurship whose core activities not only provide revenue to owners and employees, but also in a tangible and preferably measurable way benefit individuals and society, locally, regionally or globally.”
