European Forum Alpbach

Radical innovation combined with entrepreneurial spirit for positive impact – especially in the presence of global crises, the value of social entrepreneurship becomes visible: instead of continuing ‘business as usual’, new solutions and models for social, ecological and cultural challenges are being developed, implemented and scaled.

As we strongly believe that especially students have the necessary drive and courage to walk new paths and will play a crucial role in shaping the future, we offered a workshop at the European Forum Alpbach.

After a brief intro by Dr. Erhard Busek, President of the European Forum Alpbach, we tried to provide insight into the concept and underlying believes of social entrepreneurship and showcase examples of young social entrepreneurs and their global impact. Furthermore, we opened the floor for a dialogue around the idea and the limitations of social entrepreneurship and offered the space for participants to develop and progress own ideas and initiatives.
