Engage in change – because entrepreneurship is everybody’s business.
Who are we at Drivhuset?
”Entrepreneurship is everybodys business”.
This is how our vision sounds, but what does it really mean? Many believe that entrepreneurship is about realizing business ideas and starting new, growing companies. Indeed, that’s a part of entrepreneurship, but for us, it’s so much more. To us, entrepreneurship is about finding new sustainable solutions that create value for others and for the world. When changes occur rapidly, when the old way of doing things no longer works, and when people and organizations face obstacles and challenges for positive and sustainable development, entrepreneurship plays a crucial role. Being able to create sustainable value regardless of the context is essential for us to grow and solve challenges, whether they arise in our daily lives, workplaces, or in society at large. That’s why we believe “entrepreneurship is everybody’s business.”
Our mission is to train, educate, coach, and support people with concrete tools and our research-based methods – Loopa and Tookig – so that they can develop, test, and implement new ideas that make a difference. The world is becoming increasingly complex, development is moving at a rapid pace, and the truth we know today may be different tomorrow. This requires increased flexibility, the ability to handle uncertainty, to see opportunities, and to have an innovation-focused leadership style – competencies often associated with entrepreneurship. However, entrepreneurial activities also increase people’s motivation, engagement, and sense of purpose. Competencies and skills in value creation are becoming increasingly prioritized to meet major societal challenges and manage changes in the job market and society at large. Therefore, training people’s entrepreneurial abilities is our primary task.
Drivhuset in Malmö carries out extensive activities that engage thousands of people in various ways every year. We support individuals with their idea development through personal meetings, lead groups in entrepreneurial programs, conduct educational initiatives and innovation labs for educational actors at various levels, as well as for public actors and the business community. What we invest in other people’s development, we receive back in their engagement, creativity, and willingness to make a difference. They influence us, others, and the world in positive ways. That’s what we call a sustainable business model.
