Secrets of the Social Entrepreneur

Interactive session - the dos and don'ts of social entrepreneurship

Friday 28 February 2014 at 14:00 hrs
Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) Woudestein campus T3-20

Our guest speakers are social entrepreneurs who have been there, know the common pitfalls and have managed to survive!

They want to show you

  • how to promote knowledge sharing
  • how to generate solutions to common problems
  • how to generate tools for success.

If you’re a student or a social entrepreneur, this is your opportunity to question business leaders about going your own way as an entrepreneur, and making a contribution to society.


  • Marcello Palazzi, founder and President of the Progressio Foundation for human progress will discuss what it means to be a social entrepreneur
  • Entrepreneur Jente de Vries, one of the two behind Kromkommer’s crowdfunding campaign to launch a line of soups and sauces made from vegetables destined for waste. Jente and her business partner Lisanne van Zwol won the 2013 RSM Distinguished Alumni Award.  

Other guests

The interactive discussion session is hosted by RSM’s MSc Global Business & Stakeholder Management programme in collaboration with Sustainable RSM.
