Technology is increasingly present in the social economy and there are several challenges to be met in order for them to have access to the same tools as private enterprises. We propose a meeting between social economy project leaders and funders to better understand the issues and explore solutions together. We want to better understand each position, address the issues and work collectively to find solutions.
