We are happy to announce that we could win the Social innovation Lab as one of our presenters at our dissemination event on the 18th of November 2019.
The Social Innovation Lab will be represented by Corinna Kämpfe. The idea behind the Social Innovation Lab was born in and around Grünhof.
Grünhof is an incubator and home for the start-up, sustainability and creative scene of the Freiburg region. Grünhof’s mission: to shape tomorrow’s society in a creative and entrepreneurial way. Above all, the Grünhof is a huge network of doers who support each other and network with each other.
The goal of the Social Innovation Lab is to bring social innovators together and support them. Concretely, they offer space to work in the form of free co-working spaces, workshops, targeted coaching and access to a large network. They regularly organize events, where there is direct contact among social innovators and expertise exchange. In addition, the Sozionauten (Socionaut) programme is the incubator for ideas from the social sector. Here, social start-ups and teams from charities work together to turn their ideas into a functioning, system-modifying and effective innovations. The Socionaut support programme was initiated jointly by Grünhof, Diakonie Baden and Diakonie Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald in 2016. They were the first in Germany to dare to bring together the world of welfare with the world of start-ups.
Three foundations fund the Social Innovation Lab: the Heidehof Stiftung, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Renate und Waltraut Sick Stiftung, as well as by the Deutsche Postcode Lotterie. They all have in common the belief that social challenges can be solved no matter how hard it may be and how long it may take.
