Our Social Entrepreneurs

We at Impact Hub Basel want to grow social entrepreneurship in this great city.

What is a social entrepreneur?

Someone who puts people and planet equal to profit in the way they do business.

Meet students Mosas, Moritz and Jonas, Basel locals and founders of Mycrobez*, one of the social startups in our Basel Incubator program. At just 18 years old, they had an idea. What if they created packaging from mushrooms and produced it in such a way that it could replace the 25-30% of Styrofoam that currently crowds landfills worldwide – and takes over 500 years to break down (source)? The impact would be huge!

Cut to today…they are graduating from our startup support program with a minimum viable product and are ready for seed funding from investors, with the goal of scaling production and getting into the marketplace by the end of 2022.

*Microbez’s biodegradable packaging will contribute directly to a circular economy and positively impact the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 8, 9, 12, 14 and 15.

Join us! Help those doing good to do more, by becoming a #FriendoftheHub.
