How can we stimulate entrepreneurship aimed at tackling societal challenges in an effective way?

The societal challenges we are facing today call for action and entrepreneurship. These challenges are complex and transnational. How do we deal with this as a society? How do we provide sustainable solutions? How can companies contribute? How can we all work together in a smart way?

These are issues the hub Social Entrepreneurship Initiative is concerned with. Together with societal partners, we focus on entrepreneurship as a positive contribution to society. In research, education and public debate.
