Businext: growth and societal impact

We trained over 30 SME’s and social economy organizations on how to transform societal challenges into opportunities for diversification and growth.

In collaboration with several Chambers of Commerce, we trained over 30 SME’s and social economy organizations on how to transform societal challenges into opportunities for diversification and growth.

Several workshops were given and tools were provided to the participants in order to identify and design innovations delivering social or environmental impact.

Several innovations have already been implemented, such as for-example:

  • Laloux: this provider of curtains and sun screens successfully launched a new offering based on the principles of the circular and functional economy: leasing of curtains over 20 years, with an upcycling solution at the end of the leasing. Laloux is hereby developing additional business, while reducing the environmental impact of their products on one hand and enabling the cultural and non-profit sector to benefit from upcycled curtains at an attractive price.
  • Les ateliers du Saupont: this sheltered workplace launched a new organic and local cosmetic offering, allowing them to secure employment for their disabled workforce.
