Project Details


It is no wonder that the Academy for Leisure & Events is a key partner within the STEPup project which involves studying, reframing and designing for social entrepreneurship, social innovation and business modelling.

The project looks at social entrepreneurship (SE) as the process of applying innovative business models to address social problems (for people and communities) by achieving both profit and purpose. SE creates long-term value and generates sustainable impact for society and the connected ecosystem.

The experts of BUas together with the project consortium will be involved in developing, delivering and evaluating training modules for social entrepreneurs, developing a Good Practice catalogue on successful social enterprises in Europe, creating and sustaining a collaborative network based on real-life cases together with academia, social enterprise industry and impact assessment stakeholders.
