Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF)

On October 11-12 Amsterdam will be hosting the 2023 Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF). SEWF’s goal is to strengthen the global social enterprise movement to accelerate the transition to a new economy. This global event is a milestone in our city’s journey to creating a wellbeing economy that prioritizes people and the planet. Social enterprises, investors, knowledge institutions and governments all play a part in ensuring we become more inclusive and sustainable.

The event is co-hosted by the City of Amsterdam (Amsterdam Impact), Social Enterprise NL and Social Enterprise World Forum is a chance to connect with thousands of impact entrepreneurs, investors, researchers and policymakers, including speakers such as Impact Hub alumni and partners Thami Schweicler (United Repair Centre) and Danique Gunning (MUD Jeans).

Visit and meet the people working with many of the companies and organizations behind these changes in industry at the forum in October.
