- Entrepreneurship Center Network (ECN)
On 14-15 September 2022, 26 partner universities of the cross-university Entrepreneurship Center Networks (ECN) will meet for the second ECN conference in Graz. The main focus is on exchange and networking. The participants get to know the startup ecosystem in Graz better, can exchange ideas with it and make new contacts.
In the “Impact & Entrepreneurship” workshop, the Social Business Hub Styria works around the definition of the term “social enterprise”. The workshop presents the work of the Social Business Hub Styria and the Social Innovation Lab Carinthia and gives an overview of the various support programs in Styria and Carinthia. In addition, Sinbad, atempo and Compuritas, three successful social enterprises will be present and give an insight into their work.
In the second part of the workshop, we will discuss how the topic of “social entrepreneurship” can be made known at universities, how mission-driven people can be reached in all faculties and how female entrepreneurship can be supported.
Other workshops at the conference deal with the topics of spin-offs and exploitation. In addition, visitors get insights from universities from abroad on the topic of awareness for entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education and financing of activities. Finally, a panel discussion with the universities and with some decision-makers in the startup sector is planned.
We look forward to an intensive and exciting exchange with everyone involved.
Participation in the conference is only possible for invited ECN members.
