This paper has the objective, using the STEPup project implementation, to present specific recommendations and strategic guidelines on how to achieve the above, including developing provincial centers attached to participating higher education institutions at the example of universities in Thailand and Myanmar with the purpose to increase access and opportunity to an SE ecosystem for those already existing social enterprises and social entrepreneurs who are planning to create one. In addition, within this paper it shall also be explored how long-term capacity-building activities were provided to develop both the skills of the entrepreneurs themselves and to support the viability of the social enterprise. These activities must include mentoring and train-the-trainer programs as well as financial training to provide skills, confidence and opportunities to social enterprises looking to raise capital in a more cost-effective, direct way though crowdfunding. Lastly, as uniquely placed institutions to serve as a ‘bridge’ between the different stakeholders, Higher Education Institutions in Myanmar and Thailand would serve as a good practice case on how to design and develop resource hubs for social enterprise practitioners and engage stakeholders from all sectors to tackle social issues and promote awareness of the social enterprise sector’s potential.
