We ran a Social Business Competition in Frankfurt with one of our key partner organizations, JOBLINGE.  Our call for applications returned over 20 high-quality social business ideas from across Germany.

The 5 finalists pitched their social business ideas to the expert-jury at HL Frankfurt.  Office Managing Partner, Marc Werner, welcomed the audience of around 50 people, including clients such as Dell, BNP Paribas, UBS and BASF.  The key note on "Social Business and its role in Welfare States" was held by Karen Hitschke, Chief Investment Officer, Yunus Social Business.

Our Global Chair, Leo von Gerlach, presented the winner with a cheque for 5.000 Euro and the two leading businesses were awarded a place on the next HL BaSE Training programme in March 2019 in London.

Congratulations to the winners!
