    There is a growing need for volunteer efforts in many vulnerable groups in the Norwegian society. Alder is an intelligent digital platform for more and better volunteering. Alder consists of a web panel for dispatchers, an app for volunteers and a smart engine that recommends exercises and activities to volunteers based on their desires, interests and availability. The platform provides better communication, distribution of information and requests, and self-organizing groups of volunteers.

    SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP TD VEEN
    project manager Anja Moen Hareim

    anja@tdveen.no

     

    If you have any questions regarding other aspects of TD Veen’s operations, contact information is available in the main menu at the top.

A social entrepreneur solves social problems in a new way, using methods we usually find in business. The solution benefits a third party who isn’t directly involved. Social entrepreneurs may be found in both the private, public and voluntary sectors.

TD Veen has chosen to focus on four areas of social entrepreneurship: Young people, rehabilitation, pure food and redesign/recycling. The social entrepreneurs at Eiganesveien 95 are all in the start-up or development stage of a sustainable business, product or service.

Cooperation between the social entrepreneur and TD Veen means that he or she rents an office space for a period of three months to two years. In addition to rent, the entrepreneur contributes to the fellowship, both socially and with knowledge, throughout the period. In return he or she receives guidance, expertise and sparring from both TD Veen and the other social entrepreneurs. TD Veen also contributes financially to the project
