Orientation Week - "Let's solve sustainability issues together!" - VUB Chair of Social Entrepreneurship

Wednesday, 20 September, 2017 - 14:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
Faculty: Social Sciences and Solvay Business School
Welcome event

Our world is confronted against many issues affecting our lives and wellbeing, hardly addressed by the government, private sector or other actors of the civil society. Social Entrepreneurs have found, on these social problems, an opportunity to launch their businesses and generate a social impact.  We know that our students (specially the international ones) hold an enormous amount of ideas and warm-hearted intentions to solve most of these issues, but an extra push is needed to make them happen.

The VUB Cair of Social Entrepreneurship has recently launched a free crowdsourcing crowdfunding platform to support Social Entrepreneurs to launch their projects. Join us during this session to be inspired by other VUBers who are currently running projects on our platform and to discover how you can turn your ideas into reality by being also part of our community.
