Spring Update from 180 DC Berlin!
Dear Alumni and friends of 180 DC Berlin, We hope this newsletter finds you enjoying the spring weather! Our consulting semester has just finished, and we’re excited to share with you some updates about our branch.
Social Entrepreneurship Panel We would like to invite you to our Social Entrepreneurship Panel on March 24, 7 p.m. (that’s this Wednesday)! The Social Entrepreneurship Panel brings together stakeholders of the social entrepreneurship world to discuss pressing topics. We will revisit what happened during the last year which was greatly shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. Certain industries might enjoy prominent press coverage providing us with almost real-time overviews of their development or e.g. financial policies made in order to balance out the economic effects of worldwide lockdowns. But how are social enterprises, their causes and volunteers, and, above all, we all as a society doing right now? Our panelists include Katja Urbatsch, Founder and Managing director of Arbeiterkind.de, Björn Lampe, a member of the board of betterplace.org, Caro Orrego, representing 180 DC Berlin. Our moderator is David J. Berkes, alumnus of 180 DC Berlin and business development teammate at the Berlin startup Raisin. You can join via this Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87147788011
Final Event Our final event concluded the semester last week, with highly professional presentations by each of our consulting teams. 60 attendees joined us in hearing about the challenges, methods, and recommendations being delivered to our project partners. We heard nothing but gratitude and excitement from our partners, and we are so proud of the work the consultants have done!! When asked, consultants submitted their personal highlights of their 180DC journey -- you can see the results below. This is why we are here! If you’d like to hear more details about the team’s final results, please reach out! Members of the teams can then be directly in touch with you.
Applications for Summer Semester 2021 are OPEN! Applications are still open to join the executive team as a Marketing Manager!
