MentorProgramma Friesland, Inqubator Leeuwarden, Business Development Friesland and Knowledge2018 join forces to organise the event ‘Vital Region: Entrepreneurship for social challenges’ in order to inspire and connect.
Keynote speaker Jaap Koen Bijma will, supported by 2 current practises from the field, inspire to tackle social challenges and to create new networks. With workshops led by regional and European actors, the event offers you an international perspective on the future of enterprise, hubs and how they can contribute to solve social challenges
The event gives you the opportunity to bring in social challenges from your region or organisation and find solutions together with the other event participants. Think of it as a social innovation marketplace, where public authorities, private companies and third sector organisations can post and give visibility to social and environmental challenges they want to solve. At the event, students, professionals, social innovators and (start-up) entrepreneurs from across Europe are given the opportunity to discuss solutions to the given social need and hopefully come to innovative insights and solutions together!
