The idea to create The Social Entrepreneurship Forum first appeared in the fall of 2014, when Jana attended multiple Think Tank events in Washington D.C.. Also Christine considered it a fruitful plan to host a Think Tank  for Vienna’s Social Entrepreneurs to be, which resulted in the first event in the spring of 2015 with around 30 attendees (under the name Social Venture Think Tank). After helping with the the organisation of the following events, both Fran and Alex quickly took up the spirit and joined the team. The most recent addition to the SEF Team was Goran, also sharing SEF’s vision.

Since the spring of 2015 not only our naming, but many other things have changed. A lot of brainstorming, experimentation and feedback have transformed a vague idea into a growing community of like-minds: people who strive to make the world a better place by creating sustainable yet social business models. 

We just left the pilot phase and recently launched our website, Facebook page, and much more. Click here to find out more about our mission.

The SEF story continues.
