During the past three months, the amazing team of the Chair provided me with an incredible growing experience. Being one of the Chair’s Intern, put me for the first time in contact with highly ambitious social entrepreneurs and the challenges they faced in pursuit of their vision. My colleagues always welcomed my opinions and made me feel respected while involving me in various key activities with great responsibility. I would strongly recommend joining the team

Working for the VUB Chair of Social Entrepreneurship as an intern was a great opportunity to get to learn and be more in contact with the challenging world of social entrepreneurs. I had the possibility to help the Chair and some projects on developing innovative and sustainable solutions for their business ideas. A rewarding experience!
