Business challenges meet sustainable solutions

ScaleUp4Sustainability: New platform online

New platform launched: As a consortium partner in the EU project ScaleUp4Sustainability, Borderstep is working with a number of universities and companies from Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden to promote the development of innovative, challenge-based teaching and learning programs for sustainable entrepreneurship.

Now, an online platform developed in the project to promote challenge-based collaboration between students and companies has been launched. The Sustainable Venturing Challenges platform aims to facilitate collaboration between companies as challenge providers and students as solution providers.

The platform’s core offering is a growing database that brings together all challenge matchmakers, alliances and initiatives. This is intended to provide a holistic overview of the European landscape of student-business challenges in the field of sustainable entrepreneurship. Challenge profiles, real-life experiences and a series of guides and tools complete the platform offering.
