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!

During the course of the last decade we have become increasingly aware of the fact that corporate social responsibility is an integral part of a world in which competitiveness and sustainable development go hand in hand.

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!

Im Laufe des letzten Jahrzehnts sind wir in wachsendem Ausmaß darauf aufmerksam geworden, dass die gesellschaftliche Verantwortung von Unternehmen (CSR) ein integraler Bestandteil einer Welt ist, in der Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und nachhaltige Entwicklung Hand in Hand gehen.

Our Main Partners

Become Sustainable Entrepreneur 2016!

With SEA we are looking for businesses/projects/ideas, whose innovative, lucrative business models have found the solution to an ecological or social problem. Independent from size, industry or country everybody is invited to submit his project, idea and business model focused on Sustainable Entrepreneurship.

All submissions received until the 16th of September 2016 are running through the evaluation process for the SEA 2016.

For our 5th anniversary we have further developed our event concept. As the awards have been given on a glamourous evening gala event in past times, we have changed the focus on exchange and communication between entrepreneurs, investors, interested people. Therefore we have decided to start the SEA-event already in the afternoon hours. The finalists of the year 2016 will be invited to present their project/company to the jury-members and potential investors. After closing the evaluation process of the finalists the winners will be announced and awarded on an exclusive evening event. The most outstanding project will receive a reward of 10.000 euros.

We are looking forward to numerous submissions.

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