Our mission

We make social innovations grow

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.

Our focus

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.

We offer a variety of support options for people interested in starting a business and for organizations and companies that want to increase their social impact.


Our programs include creative workshops for idea generation, an incubation program for social entrepreneurs and an acceleration program for social businesses that want got scale their social impact.

Social Entrepreneurship Programs


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.
