Mentoring workshop at magdas HOTEL in Vienna
This year’s social innovation academy will be held in a very special place, magdas HOTEL, a finalist of the first ever Competition back in 2013! By the way: Run as a social business, magdas HOTEL tries to solve social and economic problems with entrepreneurial tools.  The hotel functions like every other company, just that our focus is not the maximization of profit, but the maximization of openess and humanity. Since the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna is a neighbor collaborating with its students was obvious. The creativity of the young artists can be found in many corner of the hotel.
Inspired by the workshops in this unique enviroment the second phase of the Competition will then start straight away, leading up to the awards ceremony in Brussels in late November where the three winners will each be awarded a €50,000 prize.
