The first edition of the big community event of the Styrian social business scene will take place on 23 November 2022 from 6 p.m. at the UNICORN Startup & Innovation Hub!

With this event, we would like to offer the opportunity to provide you with the latest information from the field of social business. On the other hand, this evening also serves to network within the community and the ecosystem itself.

About the program: The work of the Social Business Hub Styria will be presented in entertaining lectures. In addition, we are expecting top-class guests from politics, such as State Councilor Barbara Eibinger-Miedl and City Councilor Günter Riegler. In a panel discussion, together with managing directors of successful social business companies, you will explore the importance of social enterprises for society and business location. In another discussion round, the first participants of our Impact Incubation Program will tell you what they were able to take away with them during their time at the Social Business Hub Styria.

Another highlight of the event is the presentation of the new campaign of the Social Business Hub Styria. The networking part that follows makes it easier to talk to each other and expand your network.

We look forward to an inspiring and at the same time entertaining evening!
