Session: Company structures and certifications as a driver for social innovation

Social Innovation Summit starts in one week! Sweden’s annual meeting place for social innovation and social entrepreneurship brings together stakeholders from all over the Nordic countries. In addition to keynotes, film premiers, matchmaking, Unconference space and a lot of other goodies, 12 parallel sessions are offered, where you as a participant choose your own area and area. One of these is about company structures and certifications as a driver for social innovation.

In many countries, new legal structures and certifications have been developed to inspire entrepreneurs to be more socially minded and accountable. In this session, we look into some examples of how this is done and ask if new company structures can encourage more social entrepreneurship. Is the boring stuff actually key to making it big? We meet one of Sweden’s first B-Corp certified companies, a politician and a representative from Social Enterprise Mark. The session is moderated by Martin Thörnkvist.
