About oikos Develop Prize

In oikos Develop Prize we focus on making a real difference! Every year we host a social entrepreneurship competition for students from various Danish universities with a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The participants come together to form multidisciplinary teams and work on innovative and sustainable solutions that are both financially viable and have potential to become real and life changing business ideas.  

During the event participants partake in workshops and receive guidance from our interdisciplinary team of Advisors and Mentors  to develop their social enterprise venture. The participants’ final project will be presented to our Jury Panel, who will select the best idea based on its business potential and ability to contribute to sustainable development. The winning team will be awarded a prize that will help them build on their business idea. Participants who attend all the workshops and present will receive a certificate on “Social Entrepreneurship”. 

Be a part of something bigger 

The aim of oikos Develop Prize is to give students a possibility to be a part of something that can potentially change the world! Hopefully, the participants will have a great learning experience and walk away full of inspiration and new knowledge, and who knows; one day they might create a company that will truly make a difference in the real world!
