Peter Wollaert on the Socialisation of Entrepreneurship

Tuesday, 15 December, 2015 - 18:00
ICAB Business & Technology Incubator
Witte Paterstraat 4, 1040 Brussel
VUB KTI & Crosstalks
Keynote lecture

Crosstalks will organise the final session of the VUB Starter and Advanced Starter Seminars. This session will zoom out to innovative acts of entrepreneurship that benefit society in general. Creating new products and services is part of entrepreneurship's credo, but profit maximization is not.

Social entrepreneurship implies looking for novel business models and innovative perspectives that contribute to social cohesion, employment, and the reduction of inequalities. It requires an insight in the process and future of entrepreneurial responsibilities that meaningfully contribute to economic development, with high standards not only towards one's own business, but also with regard to a sustainable planet and society.

Keynote lecture by Peter Wollaert (Fellow UNITAR & Managing Director CIFAL Flanders), followed by several cases and a debate.

Date: Tuesday December 15, 6-9.30pm
Venue: ICAB, Business & Technology Incubator

Organisation of the VUB Starter and Advanced Starter Seminars: VUB Knowledge & Technology Transfer Interface
