The Entrepreneur's Pledge is a network of experienced, sustainable-thinking entrepreneurs who have founded well-known and successful companies and want to use their talent to build and support social businesses. At our most important event on 09 June 2017, we invite your team to pitch at our Summit and work together on your challenges in an in-depth, 4 hour workshop. Confirmed attendees include the founders of Ableton, Amorelie, CoffeeCircle, Einhorn, Helpling, Startnext, TerraCycle, Trivago amongst others.
The experienced entrepreneurs, some of whom have built billion dollar businesses, will invest their time, knowledge and network to help you take your company to the next level.
Several start-ups have been receiving coaching from the Entrepreneur's Pledge, with great results: While having mentors is a great benefit for building a successful business, having mentors who are real entrepreneurs and may have faced similar challenges in the past is the greatest asset for a business.

After submitting your application, we invite ten teams to pitch at the Summit on 09 June, outlining the business idea and the challenges that need assistance. The five teams with the most votes receive a 5-hour long workshop with well-known, experienced entrepreneurs to support them. At our previous event, the Summit was not just a success for founders who made it to the last round, but also for businesses that didn’t get enough votes. Apart from getting useful feedback, these businesses received useful contacts and arranged partnership agreements with our members’ companies. Read more about the details in our attached FAQ.
We believe that bringing together impact businesses with experienced mentors is key to improving the social entrepreneurship ecosystem and seeing the first ‘social unicorn’ company in Germany.
