The VUB Chair of Social Entrepreneurship

Invites you to become a founding partner

The Chair of Social Entrepreneurship at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel supports social entrepreneurs to realize their dreams. The mission of the Chair is to become an internationally recognized center of excellence through its scientific research and hands-on support of social entrepreneurs.


The financial commitments in support of the Chair were till September 2020. We are happy that Euroclear and Close the Gap are extending their support with 2 more years (2021 and 2022). To continue and increase our support to social entrepreneurs in Belgium and abroad, we are looking for additional chair partners. For the continuation of the Chair, we need a commitment of 20.000 EUR per year for a period of two years. If you are interested, don't hesitate to contact me to discuss.


With your support, we will be able to increase our outreach in support of social entrepreneurs, and thus contribute to making this world a better place. Thanks in advance!

More information about our achievements, highlights, ambitions, and goals are to be found in the document underneath!
