Sullivan Foundation Sponsors Social Entrepreneurship Trip to Germany for Faculty

A study by SEFORÏS found that German social enterprises are global leaders in collaboration and innovation. Educators in the Sullivan Foundation network can see for themselves how these social entrepreneurs operate in a trip to Germany next spring.

The Social Entrepreneurship Faculty Trip to Nuremberg, Germany takes place May 20-31, 2020. Estimated costs are $3,300 per person (including flight, some meals, transfers and accommodations), plus dinners, drinks and personal items. The trip will be limited to nine people, and the spots will likely fill up fast. The deadline to register is Dec. 15, 2019, with a $1,000 nonrefundable payment due at that time.

Faculty at Sullivan Foundation-endowed partner schools may be able to get some of their costs covered by endowment funds.

Sullivan faculty members will get the chance to examine Germany’s basic principles of social entrepreneurship and the philosophical foundations upon which they’re built. They’ll also visit social businesses and meet the owners while taking part in classroom experiences with students and professors from the University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg. Additional experiences will provide an in-depth perspective on the historical and ethical context in which German businesses operate as compared to the American business culture.
