The School of Management Fribourg and Ashoka – the world’s largest network of Social Entrepreneurs, joined forces to contribute to the development of innovative alliances between corporates and social entrepreneurs in Switzerland.
Our goal is to help companies understand and take part in co-creation. Together, we launched a survey to find out how much the leading companies in Switzerland know and what they think about co-creation and social entrepreneurship.
The results will be shared during this workshop. With the support of the Swiss Development Cooperation, the initiative is extended to the public sector – involving all three sectors for greater impact.
One-day workshop "Social & Business Co-Creation workshop for greater collective impact"
22 March 2018, 10:00 – 17:00, School of Management Fribourg
In a world defined by rapid change, the search for solutions to social challenges has become more complex. To solve the problems of our time at the scale and speed required, it is crucial to involve all three actors: the social, the public and the private sector. Participants from all three sectors will come together in Fribourg to get inspired by innovative and high-impact collaborative models and explore how to build together potential solutions for society’s most pressing problems.
Evening event "Entrepreneurial leadership in the digital era"
22 March 2018, 17:15 – 21:00, BlueFactory "Halle Bleue", Passage du Cardinal 1, 1700 Fribourg
The event “Entrepreneurial leadership in the digital era”, an inspiring panel discussion with keynote speaker Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia and Ashoka Fellow will follow the day program. A roundtable discussion with participants from different sectors focuses on deepening the most important points.
What we call co-creation is the ability to create innovative alliances between complementary players that often do not work together: the social, public and business sector. Each one brings their complementary expertise with a common purpose to create social impact and economic value.
