Sustainable entrepreneurship

Having an entrepreneurial mindset is an essential skill in a society facing ongoing digital transformation and other challenges. New solutions to problems are urgently needed. Entrepreneurial individuals put their ideas into action and change something. They are creative, innovative, and act responsibly in their approach to sustainable development. Today’s shift towards more sustainable development concepts, sustainable entrepreneurship will no doubt play an important role.

BFH SUSTAINS supports sustainable entrepreneurship in two ways. The platform encourages you to think and act in an entrepreneurial manner, and it helps you in developing your ideas for entrepreneurial projects.
