“These kinds of events are very welcome for the field of social entrepreneurship in Moldova. We hope very much that in future editions we will see more social entrepreneurs or those just starting social enterprises and facing certain problems, so that they can receive information, advice directly from the event. Including, it would be welcome to have donors here who would talk about their intention to give donations and what questions a grant should answer, for a social enterprise so that they can receive it.” – Anișoara Bezărău, Centrul Contact
“It’s my first time at such an event and I found it very interesting and interactive. I learned many new things for me and it’s very good that after the event you get to know many people, create relationships, thus new ideas appear. I am the representative of the “Copii Ploii” Association for children with rare diseases and autism, we are at the decision stage of forming a social entrepreneurship and a step-by-step guide in this direction would help us a lot.”– Angela, member of the Association Council ”Copiii Ploii”
„Creative. I didn’t know about such a program. Very pleasant atmosphere, there was no tension where you are afraid to say, that is, everything is very open. And most importantly, there is no theory, everything is in practice. We talked about what we know, what we learned or would like to know. Speakers are very good.” – Zinaida Imilianova, Tiraspol Innovation Agency
“We represent MedClub Moldova, which is a social platform, in our opinion. Where we promote health campaigns. And our first project is first aid courses, we went to schools, we had participants from certain businesses and we are open to other collaborations. We have online and offline courses. Online for people who are in the diaspora or who want to be at a distance and offline for those who want to come to us. Today, we came to the conclusion that our courses come to help the population to realize how important it is to be prepared for certain situations in life. The event brought together several entrepreneurs and we tried to learn and find out more things from their experience. Today’s event is an experience for us. A new one. We will definitely come to the 2nd edition.” – Olimpia Gherman, fondatoarea MedClub Moldova
