About Us

The Social Business Club of the University of St. Gallen is an unique platform for students, companies, researchers and entrepreneurs looking for social innovation and transfer of knowledge between emerging markets and Switzerland. Not only do we offer exclusive workshops with our partners, but also various campus events that foster students' interest, such as inspiring movie nights to discuss about sustainability topics. All in all, we create a long lasting, dynamic, and friendly community dedicated to face our generation's challenges through purpose-driven private initiatives.

Why Social Businesses

A Social Business is a socially driven profit-making entity with a positive impact on society either directly through the nature of the endeavour or through a rigorous social mindset.

Ongoing Projects

Social Business Network Center
The motivation behind the development of this platform is based on two dimensions: (i) The support of the communications and synergies between social businesses (ii) The stimulation of possible connections between social business and impact investors through a match-making tool.
The Emerging Market Fellowship
The Emerging Market Fellowship (EMF) prepares students to become social entrepreneurs in emerging markets. In 2017, 15 students were sent on the field in the Jujuy Province, Argentina, to better understand the Argentinian entrepreneurial mindset through a mix of theory and practical experience.
Workshops
In collaboration with our partners, we organise expert-lead workshops on emerging markets, entrepreneurship, and sustainable business.
