Social-Startup-Hub Bayern


As the go to contact for impact-driven startups and aspiring social entrepreneurs, we know the challenges along the way and will help you to overcome them.



As the place to go for social start-ups, we unite support from all regions of Bavaria. Our free consultations, offered to all individuals and teams, are available to those who value sustainability and advance social change through entrepreneurial endeavours. Our events are the ideal place to exchange ideas with other entrepreneurial, social impact-focused individuals in Bavaria.



We offer free networking and consultations to individuals and teams throughout the lifespan of a project. Whether a project idea has matured or already been implemented, we are here to help! What counts is the potential impact of the idea and its focus on sustainability.



Your enthusiasm and passion for a social cause are at the center of what we do. Our aim in an initial consultation is to learn more about you and your project, and to plan next steps together. We will aid you on an individual or team level and also offer many larger events that allow for networking with like-minded people.

The support from SEA has helped us a lot! The counseling sessions gave us tailored support and encouragement. We are especially grateful for the communication help during the crowdfunding campaign.

The start-up advice was extremely helpful because, with SEA, we had a competent partner to bounce ideas off of and to learn from when working through our concept and strategic concerns. We continue to learn about methods and content frequently. The suggestions we received are implemented regularly.

We have benefited greatly from the professional advice from SEA. We were particularly impressed by the clear, goal-oriented solutions offered which were easy to implement and yet so effective. We were able to integrate the feedback into our work perfectly.

SEA rocks! The advice helped us to concentrate on the most important things. We’ve enjoyed interacting with an experienced consultant.

With SEA we’ve been able to achieve so much. We defined the term “impact film”, developed a three-stage model with cross-financing and pro-bono alternative in the form of a competition, developed the concept for the film competition, and produced 12 impact films. This rapid development would not have been possible without the methodical support and the vital comments from our start-up consultant Anne Dörner.

As founders, we have found a key partner in the Social Entrepreneurship Academy.
