A Meaningful Career: What are your options?
Are you looking for a meaningful job? This urge combined with a need for innovation and positive impact leads us directly to concrete career options.
Our goal is to present you different paths for a job with meaning as impact-driven entrepreneurs & intrapreneurs. Additionally you can connect with a network of peers who have similar questions. Why?

They are looking to change something in the world through their job: a career with purpose. This does not mean that money is not important. On the contrary, we all want to take care of our families and be able to enjoy the opportunities of our time. However, it should be possible to combine the different factors that makes us happy, shouldn’t it?
It turns out to be difficult for professionals to access opportunities to combine money and meaning. Are you one of those? Then this event is for you.

Carla was an experienced Marketing Manager when she got interested in blockchain technology. She got so hooked by its possibilities, that she had to find a way to pivot into this space. First, she got an advisor role at Lykke Corp and finally joined Smart Containers Group by convincing the management team to run an ICO and build the next generation of fully autonomous containers based on blockchain technology.
Anaïs was director and senior advisor at Climate-KIC when she decided that she wants to more deeply support people in their personal development towards entrepreneurial leaders. So she quit her job and co-designed the uDEL, a one-year real-life learning experience to develop entrepreneurial leadership skills.
