Presentation of the current data from the Social Business Region Styria-Carinthia (hybrid)

UNICORN – Startup & Innovation Hub (Conference Deck, 4. Stock)
Schubertstraße 6a, 8010 Graz

The second edition of the report on measuring the social business sector will be presented at a morning event. This time with an innovation: In collaboration with the Institute for Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship at the Alpen Adria University, data from the entire southern region of Styria-Carinthia was collected for the first time.

During the event, the latest key figures for the sector from the survey period 2021 to May 2023 will be presented. A pleasing detail emerges here: the trend is continuing seamlessly in both federal states despite the crisis. There is strong growth in companies with a social and ecological impact.

In addition to presenting the current results, we look forward to discussing the Styrian and Carinthian social business sector with exciting guests from science and politics.

Date: November 14th, 2023, 10 a.m. (event duration approx. 60 minutes)
Venue: UNICORN – Startup & Innovation Hub ( Conference Deck, 4th floor) , Schubertstraße 6a, 8010 Graz
