Social Impact Lab Frankfurt
For the first time in Germany, young people with an immigrant background and social entrepreneurs are offered space for their business ideas and professional development under a single roof by the pioneering work of the Social Impact Lab Frankfurt. The project "AndersGründer", funded by KfW Stiftung, is the first start-up centre in the Frankfurt area specifically geared towards social innovators. "ChancenNutzer", financed by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, is the first project nationwide that provides extensive assistance to young unemployed people from immigrant families on their way to becoming entrepreneurs and that offers all-round individual career advice. The project in Frankfurt is designed to pave the way for other similar centres for new entrepreneurs in Germany. Since 2015, there are also stipends of the programme ANKOMMER.Perspektive Deutschland being trained in Frankfurt.
Three years of successful development and work in the metropolitan region Frankfurt/Rhine-Main have passed. For a further three years, the Social Impact Lab Frankfurt is a common initiative of KfW Stiftung, Beisheim Stiftung and Social Impact gGmbH.
