The nonprofit sector

Why entrepreneurship for nonprofits? Watch Georg von Schnurbein speak about the reason for this course.

The nonprofit sector has expanded on a global scale. However, after decades of growth, nonprofits today face several challenges. They have to deal with new expectations in terms of mission, organization, and financing.

In order to participate in solving the current societal challenges, nonprofits need to adapt. In this course, we present new concepts and methods of entrepreneurship that are especially suitable for the specific characteristics of nonprofits.
