EVOLVE Conference 2018

The EVOLVE Conference on Social Entrepreneurship took place this year on the 20th and 21st of April 2018 at the University of St. Gallen, for the first time, with slightly less than 200 attendees.

The collective platform was enabled through the networking activities organized, the interactive workshops on both afternoons and the pitching opportunities for 3 start-ups founded by students of the university. From the feedback we received, these workshops on the circular economy, impact investment, the challenges and opportunities of social business and many more, had a large impact on the participants and were strongly enjoyed.

Additionally, 5 keynotes, ranging from the Power of the Mind and Micro-Sharing to using Blockchain technology for a social purpose and covering many more themes, as well as 3 interactive and confrontational panels on Impact Investment, The Big Merge and a flipped panel on Theory and Practice of Social Entrepreneurship raised awareness for the current situation and its importance for the future.
