We are the new generation of social entrepreneurs who believe that organizations, with focus on commerce, society and environment, will create value for themselves and their surroundings on a long-term basis.

This asks for a change in strategy, approach and more partnerships with other organizations such as companies, government and NGOs. Here lies our superpower. We connect existing structures with new opportunities and translate these into innovative solutions. A new generation of leaders called ‘Young Professionals’ are a source of innovation and are therefore the core of our projects.

Our impact

De Partnership Verkiezing

In 2018, De Partnership Verkiezing is already celebrating its five-year anniversary! During this successful program, young professionals and managers compete on behalf of their organization for the best business case that lands them funding for implementation in a developing country. In 8 months they receive guidance and inspiration from social entrepreneurs and experts. Winning teams receive prizes such as €2500 startup capital and media opportunities worth €10.000. An exciting race to the prize motivates the teams to gather enough website votes and to convince the tough jury. Previous juries included minister Ploumen and Paul Polman, CEO Unilever. Hundreds of organizations already participated and developed successful business cases. Interested in participating? Visit www.departnershipverkiezing.nl.

Heroes from this year’s edition work at ABN AMRO, Ahold, Alliander, FMO, ING, Philips, PwC, Rabobank and Zilveren Kruis.
