Europe is being tested by rising inequality, refugee integration, disappearing jobs and shrinking civic space.

A new crop of social enterprises and social-purpose organizations are responding to the challenges. To create meaningful impact, these businesses need stable funding, capacity and partnerships.

The European Venture Philanthropy Association, a collection of investors, grantmakers, banks and business schools, has tasked itself with boosting capital flows and building an ecosystem of support for social ventures.

The EVPA is convening more than 500 leaders from more than 30 countries for its annual conference in Oslo, Norway Nov. 9–10.
