StartUP Schleswig-Holstein e.V.

StartUp SH

The School of Sustainability is member of the association „StartUP Schleswig-Holstein e.V.“. The aim of the association is to support the start-up culture in Schleswig-Holstein. The association has been founded from the “Innovation orientated network Schleswig-Holstein”. Different universities and university near actors of the state combine their competences to strengthen the variety of start-ups in the region. The project takes place from 01.01.2017 until 31.12.2021 and will be funded with around 6.9 million euros from the European Fund for regional development (EFRE).

The role of the School of Sustainability

In universities one finds a lot of potential, but a low amount of opportunities for start-ups. With accordance to the Social Entrepreneurship Program the School of Sustainability supports start-up teams during the development and implementation of their social entrepreneurial start-up idea. Students familiarize their selves with strategies, concepts and actors from social entrepreneurship and develop their own project idea and pilot phase. The Social Entrepreneurship Program contributes to the development of innovation supporting structures for social entrepreneurial innovations as well as to the establishment for a sustainable development of the state Schleswig-Holstein.
