 How to Start a Social Startup Learning for changeThe present guidebook “How to Start a Social Startup” is supported through a grant provided by  Municipality of Varna in the framework of the Vanra 2017 European Youth Capital programme.

Decision to prepare this guidebook comes as a result of several years work – theory and practice. People involved in preparation of this edition met years ago as experts working on development  concepts for European Youth Capitals, where emerged two very important topics – social  innovation and social entrepreneurship. Coming from countries with similar social and political  context during the past fifty years, it was not a big challenge to recognise the social innovation concept as strong point to address many of the problems existing in our communities, cities and probably in the entire region of South Eastern Europe.
And social entrepreneurship is seen as one of the strongest measures to apply social innovation also as a tool for strengthening communities with active citizenship and volunteering. Neglected areas as social inclusion, urban development, healthcare, employment, education, etc. are among  most preferred areas for social entrepreneurship.
