At the Impact Hub Bergen, a young social entrepreneur named Kathrine Marthinsen, is based. She runs Folkelig, a public health company, is full of energy and knows the value of sharing knowledge and connecting people. We´ve known her for some time now, and have been impressed ever since the first time we met. So when she reached out to ask if SIX Coffee (formerly Impact Coffee) could be launched in Bergen, we were all super excited and said YES straight away. Our partners in SIX Nordic, Social +, Sitra, and Forum for Social Innovation and the global SIX office chimed in on that YES quickly.
Now SIX Bergen has launched, and their first SIX Coffee is Wednesday 24th of August already. Here´s more from their Facebook event!
Inspired by our friends in SIX Oslo – Social Innovation Exchange Oslo, we recently formed SIX Bergen – Social Innovation Exchange Bergen – and starting up a monthly, informal meetup with coffee and conversations about social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
We are very excited about the first event – we get a visit from Jill Loga, researcher on social innovation at Uni Research.
This fine wedneday morning you can drink your first and most important cup of coffee while learning more about her research on «Social entrepreneurship – municipal agents of change» – commissioned by KS earlier this year. There will be time for questions, comments and conversations about the topic, but we promise you will be out and ready for the day by 09.00 sharp.
