SEA:start – now available across Europe
Following a pilot phase in spring 2014, Social Entrepreneurship Akademie started the national roll-out of the programme in Germany in autumn 2014. By summer 2015, 14 workshops were organised which resulted in a total of 350 participants coming up with 70 ideas for social start-ups.
Following the strong interest expressed by many European actors, ZGI:kompakt (now SEA:start) has been established as an interdisciplinary meeting place for tomorrow’s innovators across Europe. Our focus is on partner universities in the crisis-torn countries of Europe that are particularly in need of social entrepreneurship. This approach produces a long-term leveraging effect.
The first SEA:start event abroad was successfully held in 2015 in Thessaloniki, Greece, with more south and eastern european countries following annually.
