Hefboom is an independent business which aims to promote the creation and development of “solidarity enterprises” (or socially responsible enterprises) in Flanders and Brussels by supplying them with professional services in the realms of financing, business advice and managerial support.
It sees this as a way of increasing solidarity in society in general and the economic sphere in particular.
How do we accomplish our mission?
- We offer financing opportunities, business advice and managerial support to solidarity enterprises.
- We supply savers and investors with ethically sound financial products through which they can invest in solidarity enterprises.
- We use a variety of means to publicize the concept of solidarity enterprises to increase the receptiveness of economic spheres, public authorities and the media.
- We run Hefboom itself as a solidarity enterprise.
