OnPurpose: associate-programme for the sustainable entrepreneurship sector

Borderstep welcomes On Purpose at its Berlin office

Borderstep Institute was pleased to welcome the association On Purpose in its Berlin office on 22nd February, 2019. Their associate-programme offers motivated professionals the opportunity to get to know the sustainable entrepreneurship sector through a one-year placement in different working environments, ranging from start-ups to non-profit organisations. Currently, Martin Strobel is developing the StartGreen platform at Borderstep Institute as an On Purpose associate.

During their visit, the On Purpose associates received an insight into Borderstep’s work in the field of Sustainable Entrepreneurship. Specifically, the projects GreenUpInvest and StartGreen were introduced by Alexander Schabel, senior project manager at Borderstep. Further, Dr. Yasmin Olteanu, researcher at Borderstep, presented the results of the publication Green Start-Up Monitor 2018, which was developed in collaboration with Bundesverband Deutsche Startups.

A concluding creative session offered the possibility to discuss different questions at the interface of economy and sustainability, ending the day with interesting insights into advancing sustainable entrepreneurship and green economic activity.
