Social Entrepreneurship Akademie

In 2010, the Social Entrepreneurship Akademie was established as a joint initiative by the four university-based entrepreneurship centers in Munich. Under the slogan „Education for societal change“ this unique network organisation aims to educate social entrepreneurs and social changemakers.

The Social Entrepreneurship Akademie offers therefore an educational programme, provides support to social entrepreneurship projects and works to broaden the network of organisations that anchor social entrepreneurship within society. The main activities include a 2 years certificate on social innovation for students and professionals and the support of social startups through coaching and mentoring.

Sponsors include private persons such as Falk F. Strascheg and Bernd Wendeln, as well as German Foundations like BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt and Vodafone Stiftung and Stifterverband der Deutschen Wissenschaft and company partners such as Bonventure GmbH.

The Social Entrepreneurship Akademie was among the winners of the nationwide competition “365 Locations in the Land of Ideas”, which is part of the Germany – Land of Ideas initiative. As a co-founder of the Akademie, the SCE is thrilled at the SEA‘s distinction. “The award affirms the quality of cooperation in our partnership”, said SCE Executive Director Klaus Sailer of the recognition given the joint social entrepreneurship activities conducted by the four universities LMU Munich, Technische Universität München, Universität der Bundeswehr and Munich University of Applied Sciences.
