    The Social Impact lab in Leipzig offers 260 sqm of floor space in the Stelzenhaus (an old industrial building) where it provides support for social entrepreneurs. Made possible by the Drosos Foundation. Social start-ups can get support in the form of co-working space, coaching, consultancy, workshops and networking. A living allowance can be provided to selected entrepreneurs. The Social Impact lab in Leipzig also provides support for start-up teams that are setting up a social enterprise in Portugal or Spain.

  • Das Social Impact Lab Leipzig ist ein Projekt der Social Impact gGmbH,
