Join the ‘Learning by Challenge’ session at the first digital edition of the Entrepreneurship Summit, on Saturday, 10.10.2020, 16:30 – 17:15
The Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition (CEC) was initiated in 2013 to empower entrepreneurs all around the world to create innovative answers to global and/or community challenges and to engage in a more peaceful and sustainable world. The CEC is organized by Stiftung Entrepreneurship (Berlin), Goi Peace Foundation (Tokyo), and Digital Experts United (Berlin). CEC Participants submit innovative ideas and projects with a societal impact, which champion and implement one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Before, during, and after the competition, participants have the possibility to take two courses to help develop a sustainable business model from their idea. The knowledge gained can be helpful to change or upgrade existing projects as well. In this session, Patrick Petit, the European representative of the Goi Peace Foundation, and Christian Fenner, founder of Digital Experts United, share their experiences about the CEC as a life-changing and world-changing event.
