The Digital Social Innovation Lab (#DSI Lab) focuses on opportunities of digitization for the common good. The DSI Lab Incubator is a Program of the Chair of Corporate Social Responsibility at the University of Mannheim and Social Entrepreneurship BW with the support of SAP. The program is the first project-oriented teaching format in the EU, which enables students to found their own social Start-Ups with a focus on digital innovation. Embedded in the academic curriculum of the Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Mannheim, the program enables students to gain extensive knowledge in the field of social innovation and entrepreneurship with the help of practitioners and experienced social entrepreneurs.
On the 8th April 2019 the DSI Lab #Hackathon took place in the Wizemann.space in Stuttgart! The Wizemann.space provided an inspiring environment for our students to tap on new technologies and dive deeper into their #digitalsocialinnovation. With the help of mentors from SAP, SAP 4 Good, N3XTCODER, Re.new and Social Entrepreneurship BW they can make use of expert knowledge to improve their #businessmodels and #prototypes! The students got valuable support along the development of their projects and were awarded a #fairtrade prize at the end!
