SEF blogs. Expectations and explanations.

By |Sunday, March 13, 2016|Categories: SEF blogs|Tags: , , |

As mentioned in our previous post, this blog serves multiple purposes, from documenting our progress to giving inspiration as well as a stage. How will this work?

The plan is to have different sub-sections on our blog, with 1-2 posts a week:

SEF blogs. A glimpse behind the scenes of the SEF Team.

SEF interviews. Where social entrepreneurs explain why and what they are doing, in order to make social entrepreneurship more relatable.

SEF recaps. Reviews and learnings of our events.

SEF zooms. Highlighting aspects of social entrepreneurship in specific cities. Vienna is the most obvious example, but expect a broader view.

SEF inspires.  YOUR stage to talk about topics you care for.

We are always looking for enthusiastic content contributors, so if you want to share your knowledge on our blog, feel free to contact us (franziska@socialentrepreneurshipforum.org).

SEF blogs. Our history.

By |Wednesday, March 9, 2016|Categories: SEF blogs|Tags: , , |

The idea to create The Social Entrepreneurship Forum first appeared in the fall of 2014, when Jana attended multiple Think Tank events in Washington D.C.. Also Christine considered it a fruitful plan to host a Think Tank  for Vienna’s Social Entrepreneurs to be, which resulted in the first event in the spring of 2015 with around 30 attendees (under the name Social Venture Think Tank). After helping with the the organisation of the following events, both Fran and Alex quickly took up the spirit and joined the team. The most recent addition to the SEF Team was Goran, also sharing SEF’s vision.

Since the spring of 2015 not only our naming, but many other things have changed. A lot of brainstorming, experimentation and feedback have transformed a vague idea into a growing community of like-minds: people who strive to make the world a better place by creating sustainable yet social business models. 

We just left the pilot phase and recently launched our website, Facebook page, and much more. Click here to find out more about our mission.

The SEF story continues.

SEF blogs. The beginning.

Welcome to our blog, dear SEFsters and newbies!

You might ask yourself: Why is SEF blogging?

It really breaks down to two aspects.

First of all, you, our community, form an essential pillar of the Social Entrepreneurship Forum. And we, the people behind SEF, want to be as transparent as possible. This includes how we work and also who we are. Therefore, via this blog, we want to give you a glimpse behind the scenes and keep you up to date. Capturing our progress, learning from it and sharing our passion is also a main aim of this blog.

Secondly, we aim to broaden perspectives and inspire to take action. This blog will therefore serve as a platform for creating content, sharing knowledge and making Social Entrepreneurship relatable. Furthermore, we want to involve you, so if there is anything you would like to say to other members of this community, we would be happy to give you a stage. We want you to discuss issues you are interested in.

So, what more to say? Spread the love and feel free to reach out to us (franziska@socialentrepreneurshipforum.org)!
