Investing in Creative and Social Enterprise in Indonesia

In 2019, in collaboration with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia Pacific (UNESCAP) and the Asia Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) the British Council commissioned a study, to better understand Creative and Social Enterprises in Indonesia. The study was conducted by Parahyangan Catholic University and the University of Surabaya with support from Social Enterprise UK (SEUK)

We are delighted to present the findings from the study in this report which explore creativity, enterprise and how we can combine them to build a more inclusive economy.

Evidence from emerging economies is beginning to demonstrate the role that social enterprise and the creative industries can play in contributing to sustainable and inclusive growth. The British Council’s 2018 Indonesian Social Enterprise Landscape Survey revealed that 22% of all social enterprises were to be found in the creative industries, making this the biggest social enterprise sector in the country.
