Joining forces

The founding partners, SRH-Gruppe and Global School for Entrepreneurship, have a long history in higher education and it’s innovation. They decided to join forces to launch this unique institute and educate the next generation of change-makers.

“We see education as a catalyst for change. Our vision is a world that is abundant, where we move beyond industrial ways and stop pulling resources from the earth. This vision requires a change of mindset and education. We aim to enable people to take responsibility for what they are doing and the way they operate. The ultimate goal is to create impact by shaping a future that you and I want to live in” – Thomas Blekman, Dean & Co-founder Global School for Entrepreneurship
