Winter School Social Entrepreneurship



01.-02. December 2017 - The SPRING students attended a two day workshop organized by the Impact HUB Ruhr aiming to develop business skills for social entrepreneurship in developing countries. The workshop featured multiple presentations from experts of different fields like business models, marketing and financing. The participants were challenged to develop an idea for social or ecological problems for example in their home countries. They were offered the opportunity to experience to work like a start-up, developing a business model together with a marketing and finance plan and finally pitch their idea in front of a jury. In general the workshop offered a rich learning experience for the SPRING students, opening up the possibility to start an own business that might be solving important social or ecological issues and give them a better perspective for settling in into the working environment after graduating.
