Schub – Social Cooperative Hub
For many start-ups today, good business management means more than just maximising profits. Many want the economy to serve society. One response to this development is offered by forms of companies such as cooperative and social enterprises.
The pioneering project SCHUB is committed to creating and expanding on business models with the support of the Engagement Migros development fund. The focus is on social entrepreneurship and suitable legal forms such as cooperatives. Generally, however, opportunities are identified that can be used to operate all kinds of organisations. To this end, the project is launching a start-up support programme offering mentoring services, a social business toolbox and cross-industry networking opportunities. Furthermore, an analysis of existing market conditions should contribute to improving the start-ups’ orientation.
Entrepreneurs can thus not only achieve their economic goals, but also increase social and ecological returns. The resulting overlap of values, meaningfulness and work leads to a more resilient society and economy.
