If you're looking for new solutions, you have to explore new approaches. "Business as usual" quickly reaches its limits. We provide you with a compass for your journey, build bridges where you need them and help you to overcome obstacles.
Social Business Hub Styria is a social business incubator and network for people who solve social challenges in an entrepreneurial way. We develop, promote and support social innovations, inspire and advise founders in Southern Austria, build strong networks and disseminate our expertise, thus working towards a fair and sustainable society.
The topic of social and green entrepreneurship with all its different dimensions represents the central element of our work: Social entrepreneurship for different target groups – for people who want to found or further develop their own company or intrapreneurs who focus on social innovation within companies. Social entrepreneurship offers opportunities for rural regions and creates perspectives for people facing difficult life situations. We build networks with national and international partners. Together we research and develop strategies how to build vibrant social entrepreneurship ecosystems.
Social Innovations arise when different partners with different backgrounds start working together to solve social problems. We are looking for new partners to work with us on social change for a better future in national and international projects.
