“The target of the program is social entrepreneurship. By directing our support to the socially-oriented business community, we not only support small and medium-sized businesses in the region but also provide stability to the social problem-solving processes undertaken by the founders of these enterprises,” said Ani Baboomian, Executive Director of Impact Hub Yerevan.

The official award ceremony will take place Saturday at Impact Hub Yerevan. The event will also be attended by the Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Andrea Wiktorin, as well as representatives from the Armenian Ministries of Economy, and Labor and Social Affairs.
