A whole day of seminars has been carried out with classes from Gothenburg English School. The focus of the seminars was to present the concept of innovations in social entrepreneurship and importance of building sustainable business ideas.

The team behind B.U.V: Ghana first presented the project and derived from that explained the terms of social entrepreneurship and sustainable business development. Students where set into groups and given a task to prepare and present a sustainable business idea, by finding a problem and elaborating on a business solution, providing both customer and societal utility.

We would like to thank students of the school for their shown interest to social entrepreneurship and dedication to their presentations. We would also like to thank Andrew Potter, principle of the school and Jan Liljeqvist for their involvement and help to carry out this inspiring session.
