On 7th October 2013 the Social Innovation Factory will launch in Brussels (Halles des Tanneurs, Huidevetterstraat 58, 1000 Brussels). We invite companies and organisations from 14h00 to 17h00 for an afternoon of gain knowledge and inspiration on social innovation and social entrepreneurship. Our Objective: to kick-start innovation that makes a difference to people and society.

In our complex world, doing ‘business as usual’ no longer provides sufficient answers for tackling societal challenges such as poverty, climate change, or social isolation. We need innovative ideas and concepts from people, companies and civil society who dare to think ‘outside of the box’. In the past, social innovation and social entrepreneurship successfully led to initiatives such as youth movements or citizen journalism organisations, products and services (i.e. peerby or carsharing) and new partnerships, (i.e. enterprises transforming food waste).

As a new multi-stakeholders network, we welcome citizens, businesses and civil society working on impact driven and value-based projects. The Social Innovation Factory will help innovative entrepreneurs and organizations to develop breakthroughs resulting from new services, products, organisational models or concepts. We support partnerships between the civil and corporate sector and help them reach the market, society or funding. In strengthening innovative ideas to become successful projects and by promoting the results, the Social Innovation Factory seeks to give a boost to social innovation and social entrepreneurship in Flanders and Brussels.

The unique network of the Social Innovation Factory is now ready to be launched. Be part of the community and join us at the launch taking place on 7th October 2013.

When: 7 October 2013 / 14h00-17h00 PM
Where: Halles des Tanneurs, Huidevetterstraat 58, 1000 Brussels
Free entry.
