BUSINEXT is the brand new curriculum organised by the VOKA Chambers of Commerce Halle-Vilvoorde, Leuven and Leuven Inc. under supervision of Oksigen Lab and i-propeller. During 5 sessions of half a day, entrepreneurs or future entrepreneurs will learn how  businesses can deal with societal issues such as aging population, climate change and welfare issues by using ‘next generation business models’.

During the 5 sessions, participants get insight into social trends and social innovation. Participants will go looking for shared value: new products, services and business models that have economic returns as well as a positive social impact.

In addition to the collective sessions, you will be assisted individually as well. With ‘A Social Innovation Opportunity Scan’ and four one-on-one coaching sessions, BUSINEXT helps to identify which societal challenge is relevant for your organisation.
