This report is a summary of preparatory research for the project Know Your Impact. 

 

The main aim of the project is to equip young social entrepreneurs with social impact analysis skills in order to enhance their professionalism and societal impact.

 

Aim of preparatory research is to map the status quo of impact analysis development in relation to social entrepreneurship in Estonia and Turkey.

 

Main research methods used were desk research, analysis of online communication channels, one-to-one interviews, workshops, including focus groups, and mapping existing experiences of project partners who are nationally recognized experts in their native countries. 

 

Resarch duration was from October 2015 to February 2016. 

 

The research concentrated on Estonia and Turkey as the primary beneficiaries of the Know Your Impact project are from those countries, so the project must serve their needs. Additional input was collected from the UK as samples of advanced impact analysis practices, and served as a basis of comparison for online communication. 

 

The tables in the document provide a more specific overview of the direct involvement of stakeholders and the scope of online communication study.
