We know that profitability and ethics are not mutually exclusive! Corporate activities and commitment to society are just two sides of the same coin. And with this attitude, sustainable entrepreneurship becomes an investment in the future for all people!

Europe must invest strongly in its youth, in its jobseekers, in its start-ups. In that, competitiveness and sustainability closely go together.

Wir wissen, Wirtschaftlichkeit und Ethik sind kein Widerspruch! Das gilt für Großunternehmen ebenso wie für den Mittelständler. Sustainable Entrepreneurship wird mit dieser Einstellung zu einer Investition in die Zukunft für alle Menschen!

Europa braucht massive Investitionen in seine jungen Menschen, in seine Arbeitsuchenden, in seine Start-Up-Unternehmen. Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und Nachhaltigkeit gehören dabei untrennbar zusammen.

This was the SEA gala 2016

Together with 250 top-class guests from economy, science, politics and society, we have experienced a brilliant 5th SEA gala on November 17th in the Vienna Börsensäle. Next to an impressive show from the 12 year old Beau Dermott “Britain’s Got Talent” and a very touching appearance of the Chorus Juventus, the Youth-Chorus from the ORG of the Vienna Boy Choirs, the evening was shaped by outstanding project ideas and emotional speeches, which made the Sustainable Entrepreneurship Awards 2016 to a very special event.

Prizes were given in 5 categories – altogether breakthrough, innovative projects, that deliver a tremendous social and economic contribution to a livable future.

Through the evening guided Manuela Raidl and Stuart Freeman. The gala was opened by thrilling keynote speeches from Jim Walker, Co-Founder of the Climate Group, Mavis Tingying Wang, Founder of Heaven-Gaia and followed by a moderated interview of Wilhelm Molterer, Managing Director European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) and Marc Fähndrich, Representative of the European Commission. An additional highlight provided the unique Fashion and Jewellery Show from “Heaven-Gaia”.

The event complies with the criteria of the Austrian Eco-label for Green Events.
