Government organisations and companies take on social entrepreneurship as a model for community and business development and growth. Learn from one of the most advanced in this area - Johan H. Andresen, owner and Chair of Ferd. PhD candidate Hilde Sætre will present the latest research on the development of social entrepreneurship in Europe and Norway, the drivers for growth and the economic impact to society and businesses.

Johan H. Andresen will share his and Ferd's initiatives on social entrepreneurship

Hilde Švrljuga Sætre er PhD-stipendiat ved Mohnsenteret for innovasjon og regional utvikling ved Høgskulen på Vestlandet. Sætre er også administrator for forskerseminaret Sosial innovasjon. Sætre har mastergraden sin fra Institutt for administrasjon og organisasjonsvitenskap ved Universitetet i Bergen (UiB).

Sætre forsker på hvordan frivillig sektor kan bidra til innovasjon i samspill med offentlig og privat sektor.

Ferd is a family-owned Norwegian investment-company committed to value-creating ownership of businesses and investments in financial assets. In addition to the group’s purely commercial activities, Ferd has an extensive involvement in social entrepreneurship. Johan H. Andresen is the Chair of the Board.

Ferd is made up of five business areas. The four commercial business areas have different investment mandates, but compete on equal terms for the group's capital resources. Andresen will use this occasion to talk about the fifth area - Ferd Social Entrepreneurs invests in and supports selected organisations, projects and individuals in activities where the social results carry greater weight than the financial results.
