Social Enterprise Ecosystem Report (SEER)

SEER Report Volume 3   

Halcyon has produced three volumes of the Social Enterprise Ecosystem Report. The report is made up of survey data from hundreds of social entrepreneurs, as well as publicly available data used to rank the top cities in the U.S. based on four categories: funding, human capital, quality of life, and support systems. 

The three volumes of the report tell the story of social enterprise as an increasingly mainstream part of the business world. They incorporate founders' own words around the resources they have access to (or don't), the communities they live in, and the policies surrounding social enterprise in their city or state. Each report is supplemented with expert insights that speak to the broader context around the evolving social enterprise ecosystem.

The third volume of the report was released in October 2019, and is available to explore online and download.
