In recent years, there has been a continual increase in interests in and emergence of social enterprises in Thailand. With the SE Promotion Act passed in February 2019, the trend is expected to persist. Yet, in order to strengthen the social enterprise ecosystem, social impact investment would be one of the key elements that need to grow in sync with social enterprises to ensure they would thrive.

This study investigated and consolidated knowledge on the types and amount of support provided by existing supporters as well as the current status of the social enterprises and their needs so as to provide an overview of the landscape and also insights into the gaps and opportunities in scaling social impact investment in the country.
