Undoubtedly, the prominence of entrepreneurships and start-ups has significantly changed since the turn of the century with these concepts becoming more commonplace in contemporary society. The regional diversity enjoyed by Europe and local policies play a significant role within its startup ecosystem. What if we could learn and share startup experiences at a European level? The aim of the Startup Europe Week, an initiative to unite European regions, is to help entrepreneurs make a difference and in turn aid the development of the business environment in Europe. Endorsed by the European Commission, EuCham - European Chamber co-organised the Budapest edition of the startup event at Design Terminal on 2 February 2016.
EuCham - European Chamber, in cooperation with Korean government institutions, offered an international internship opportunity to nine Korean engineering students, with the aim of acquiring global entrepreneurship and business development skills through an exchange in Europe.
Mentorship, training sessions, and networking opportunities were provided to them in Central Europe during 4 months. The participants came from two universities, Andong Science College, and Yeungnam University College with two different startup projects of their own.
The Social Business Forum is one of the CEE’s largest events of its kind that has consistently attracted hundreds of participants from over 20 different countries. Social entrepreneurship is a concept that creates innovative solutions to social problems rather than focusing on profit-maximization. The creation of new sustainable businesses that are known as social enterprises, can be achieved by encouraging social entrepreneurship.
Previous edition’s purpose was to raise awareness about social enterprises and the triple-bottom-line approach of traditional businesses. The upcoming edition, Social Business Forum 2016, will cover economic facilitators and sustainable business models regarding the social businesses. The SBF16 is an excellent opportunity for organizations, institutions and business-oriented individuals to share their ideas and experiences regarding business implementations that reinforce innovation, enrich the welfare and well-being of society.
EuCham will also act as a crowdsourcer and provide the stage for unheard voices to be recognized. Alongside the main event, an exhibition will be held among entrepreneurs. This offers the opportunity to enhance the network and meet with potential sponsors. Topics covered during the event include: social business, social entrepreneurship, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).
Everyone is inspired by ‘success’ in a different way. People who are already successful want to show their achievements while people who tend to become truly successful are continuously learning and analyzing the different perspectives of achieving success. In order to satisfy both sides, EuCham - European Chamber organized the conference Redefining Success 2015.
RSC 2015 attracted over 100 participants raising widespread positive feedback. The purpose of the conference was to create a platform for already successful, yet different businesses to share their stories and strategies of success. EuCham welcomed speakers with different backgrounds and by presenting a diversified pallet of companies operating in different stages, RSC 2015 showed its attendees that the approaches for achieving and maintaining success differ from each other and vary over time.
The conference provided a great opportunity to share knowledge, expertise and ideas on how business success can be achieved and maintained in the long term.
EuCham is currently involved in promoting the realization of the revolutionary IBIS international platform, sponsored by the United Nations, which will link donors and funders from the most developed countries with recipients from less developed ones. The purpose is to enhance actors augmenting sustainable development.
There are all the premises to be a worldwide and revolutionary innovation which could lead to significant scale-back of investments worldwide, or a potential breakdown of global cooperation on sustainability agenda.
In addition to the European Chamber, manifestations of interest in joining the project have already come from other remarkable international actors like UNEP - United Nations Environmental Programme, UNDP - United Nations Development Programme, EIB - European Investment Bank, Finnish Innovation Fund, EMPA - Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, GeSI - Global e-Sustainability Initiative, Euresearch, EIT - European Institute of Innovation and Technology, Fundes, GIZ, Horizon2020, National Cleaner Production Centers & Networks (NCPCs), Sustainable Recycling Industries (SRI), with many more under negotiation.
The Green Economic Forum is the main Central European event that gathers organizations and companies discussing the challenges of sustainability. Pushing businesses to react to environmental issues by sharing their strategies and expertise is a priority of this event.
The Forum will focus on opportunities and emerging trends for Shaping a greener future, discussing the benefits, as well as the obstacles, associated with the shift towards more sustainable lifestyles and ways of doing business.
The necessity to pursue environmentally viable approaches is a pressing need for our society. The ability to cope with recent changes in the environment, the economy and consumer behaviour is the key to uncover opportunities in order to improve businesses and to raise interest on sustainable attitudes.
High-profile representatives of several organizations and businesses will share their knowledge, experiences and ideas on how to achieve and promote a greener future.
