Online course details

Take your impact strategy to the next level

In collaboration with Social Change Innovators (SCI) and Catalyst 2030, Social Enterprise NL is developing a free online course for social entrepreneurs worldwide to develop and improve the effectiveness of their influencing strategy. The course is hosted on the SCI website, which provides ways to connect to other social entrepreneurs globally and share resources on the topic of influencing relevant for your (local) context. 
In this online course, you will explore a new dimension of impact by incorporating an influencing perspective into your organization’s Theory of Change. The course challenges you to articulate your influencing strategy explicitly. In this way, you will discover which influencing activities you might have overlooked, which activities deserve more focus, and which activities may be less aligned with your influencing capacity. Next to contributing to the effectiveness of your influencing strategy, this knowledge could help to cultivate a profound awareness and understanding of the organization’simpact strategy for all team members. 
We take you along a learning journey, consisting of 5 modules, to help you (further) develop your own influencing strategy. To help you along your journey, you will be guided through each module by various social entrepreneurs from all over the world!
