As a 100% spin‐off of Steinbeis‐Europa‐Zentrum (SEZ), Steinbeis 2i GmbH acts as a junction between economic stakeholders, policy makers on the one hand and Research and Technology Organizations on the other hand.
With the Finance4SocialChange project, S2i expects to connect with many actors in the field of social entrepreneurship throughout the Danube region. By bringing together actors from Baden‐Württemberg and from the Upper and Lower Danube, S2i hopes to contribute towards enhancing the social impact investment markets but also to facilitate the creation and development of social enterprises.
Finally, S2i expects with this project to improve the framework conditions in the project regions and thereby empower social enterprises as well as social investors. Giving social enterprises and investors more opportunities and visibility will contribute to tackle Danube‐wide challenges – especially in terms of scaling down socio‐economic disparities by investing in people and skills.
