Impact Finland next week

Posted 30 avril 2019 by Eva Wissenz.

I’m very excited and happy to represent my team at the InnoFrugal 2019 pitching contest on May 7th and to be invited as a speaker at Waves Festival.

In Finland, "social entrepreneurship" is connected to "social service". The culture of impact (start-up, companies, investment) is almost starting here where Denmark or Sweden are much more advanced ! We were so focused on our goals that we didn’t fully realized that context when we started here in Tampere. In a way, it makes things hard but on another hand, it’s exciting because there is almost everything to create !

The Aalto University incubator named New Global was launched to explore sustainable ways to do business and to engage even more the Finnish society into social - impact - sustainable entrepreneurship. Next week, their Waves Festival will bring together impact entrepreneurs to define what can be the next steps to take to make our work more visible and more supported.

InnoFrugal started in 2015 as a conference which is an "intersection where leadership, finance, technology and transformation come together to empower people and organizations." Created by Venkata Gandikota, the event is quite big now and the next edition is happening next week as well.
