SOGA EU (as we say) is a European association born from a collective initiative created at the 2017 Web Summit, gathering French and Portuguese Social entrepreneurs, associations and Philanthropy networks along with the support of former French President François Hollande and his Foundation “La France s’engage”. Since we grew to 90 representative organizations working for social innovation acceleration in Europe. Together with the European Commission, associations, social entrepreneurs, social innovators and foundations, we are committed to work together in order to encourage the actors of Social and Tech to collaborate and create innovative solutions for Social Good in the EU.
Our Goal : create a bridge between
Actors of social innovation: accelerating social innovation through digital transition
Tech actors: establish links with societal issues and distill social innovation in any technological innovation project
…in the European Union
