In cooperation with Social Entrepreneurship BW and SAP, this seminar gives students the possibility to create their own digital social start-ups. During the seminar, students work in teams (of approx. 4 students) to create ideas for digital social businesses and develop them in the course of one semester until they could be implemented. The students gain a deeper understanding of the potential of digital technology to remedy social and environmental problems, with insights into the areas of digitalization, sustainability, and social entrepreneurship. Social Entrepreneurs and SAP executives support the students as mentors and coaches during the program. At the end of the seminar, students pitch their ideas at the final event in front of a jury of experts. The best idea will receive an award. All participants receive further support through a strong network from SocEntBW and SAP to further implement their social business models.
