A Fireside Chat on Transformational Entrepreneurship – Research and Practice

25. Jan

Join us for a fireside chat on transformational entrepreneurship!

Have some coffee or tea, get comfortable in front of your laptop and listen to an interesting conversation on transformational entrepreneurship - continuing our discussions from the Leuphana Transformational Entrepreneurship Days with three experts:

  • Wiebke Hallerberg: Sustainability manager, board member of the Good Food Collective, Head of Partnership and Growth at OURZ Platform for purpose-driven food & beverage companies with her own idea about the further development of social businesses
  • Prof. Dr. Arnim Wiek: Professor at Arizona State University & Guest Professor at the University of Freiburg and Leuphana University Lüneburg, researcher and educator on developing sustainable SMEs, in particular cooperatives, benefit corporations, and social enterprises, with focus on local food economies in Arizona and Germany
  • Ursula Heimann: Entrepreneur and consultant for SMEs, startups and impact-oriented projects in Germany and Latin America with her own vision of a more holistic version of entrepreneurship based on her international experience

With these three experts from research and practice we will discuss the concept of transformational entrepreneurship, how startups can contribute to societal transformation, what researchers can offer for this debate, and how a more holistic version of entrepreneurship can look like. Everyone interested in these topics is warmly invited to join us:

Tuesday, 25th of January 4-5pm (CET) via Zoom

We are looking forward to an inspiring conversation!
