On Friday, March 17th it was time for this years students’ from the international ‘Leadership for Sustainability’ masters’ programme to present their social entreprenurship projects. Working in self-organized groups, and with support and coaching from Drivhuset, they have developed eight very different social entreprenurship concepts. Since some of these projects are in the process of becoming startups (or are spin-off’s of current startups) the concepts are confidential for the time being.
The venue was Social Innovation Skåne’s facilities at Ängelholmsgatan 1A (at Möllevången in Malmö). The groups were given six minutes to present their concept before a panel of nine invited persons, representing organizations and companies that could become partners if the concepts are to be implemented. The panelists had a lot to say – so we actually went about an hour beyond the original schedule. A general comment from the panelists, was that they were impressed by the high quality of the SE concepts and the presentations.
