Social entrepreneurship is, at its most basic level, doing business for a social cause. Social entrepreneurs combine commerce and social issues in a way that improves the lives of people connected to the cause.
We inform, train and coach social entrepreneurs in the start-up phase and provide networking opportunities. We support the development and scaling of business models with sustainable, social impact.
We coach, provide training programs, networking and collaboration opportunities for social enterprises. We support them to establish a sustainable business model and to scale their impact to achieve social change.
Social intrapreneurship means that people in large organizations such as companies or public administration realize their innovative potential and develop new products, services or business models that create added value for society as well as for their own organization.
We support companies and organizations that place the value of people and the planet alongside that of profit. This includes the development of future-oriented business models and products, strategic alignment as well as the development of an intrapreneurship culture, the establishment of internal innovation processes and structures as well as networking with innovative social businesses and stakeholders of the social innovation ecosystem.
Together with our partners, we are committed to establishing a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship that values social, environmental profit equally or higher than monetary profit. We consult public institutions and companies, create training programs, build networks and facilitate uncommon alliances between a wide variety of partners. Thus, we develop the power to bring about social change.
Entrepreneurship for ALL
We want to encourage people to take on an entrepreneurial spirit, so that they develop and implement solutions to social problems themselves. Quite a few people are facing a difficult labor market. Starting a business is one way to shape the future yourself and become independent. We support people in founding and building sustainable businesses.
We connect innovative stakeholders in structurally weak regions, build on regional strengths and use our social entrepreneurship experience and knowhow to co-create and develop new opportunities and future prospects.
Research and Strategy
We work on topics such as building social innovation ecosystems and social entrepreneurship ecosystems, framework conditions that facilitate and support social enterprises, and develop support programs and strategies that bring about positive changes in society.
