Social enterprise and the creative industries have a powerful, transformative force in the world today by contributing to sustainable and inclusive growth. Furthermore, creative entrepreneurship can unlock the hidden wealth of social innovation and talent that exists within communities in many parts of the world, as creativity is integral to identifying solutions to some of the most entrenched social challenges facing the world today.

Yet, the relationship between the characteristics and skills embodied by creative entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs are under-explored. This reveals a huge potential gap as the British Council’s 2018 Indonesian Social Enterprise Landscape Survey highlighted that 22% of all social enterprises were to be found in the creative industries, making this the biggest social enterprise sector in the country.

In collaboration with UNESCAP and the British Council, AVPN assessed the quality of the environment for social and creative enterprises (demand), and the funding and resource ecosystem for social and creative enterprises (supply).
