On May 31, two Bosch alumni organized the barcamp “Social Entrepreneurship”. More than 20 Bosch alumni and partners joined to build up new partnerships and exchange ideas with other network members on how to solve social challenges.
The barcamp was kicked-off with a Q&A: The two network experts Marika Baur (Co-Founder of Social Entrepreneurship BW) and Ivo Degn (COO of ProjectTogether) extensively answered the questions of the participants about challenges of founding and running a social entrepreneurial business. After an intense discussion, the one thing the group agreed on was the necessity of a critical feedback culture between the single social entrepreneur actors to advance in the field.
Afterwards, two barcamp sessions started. Here, the participants had the change to bring in their own projects to seek peer-to-peer counselling and to find new partners for their ideas. The suggested ideas ranked from sustainable production and upcycling of clothes to a project which aims to improve the quality of rural life.
The barcamp was hosted by two Bosch alumni from the “lectureship program”, Susanne Kitlinski and Christoph Schütz.
