Joining Skoll Forum for Social and Impact Entrepreneurs. The Skoll Forum was created in 2005 by Jeff Skoll, co-founder of E-bay, to support visionary entrepreneurs working globally to make this world a better place. In addition to the Forum, a foundation, an investment fund and a research group are cooperating together in the US and in UK to push forward the social entrepreneurship mindset. For the first time in the history of the forum, Finland was represented in the events organized and this has been made possible thanks to the collaboration the Sustainability and Impact Club has with Sepia Agency. Under normal circumstances, the Forum week is only open to invited delegates and all the sessions are then made available on-line afterwards. Due to covid-19, the Forum is happening only online this year, so make sure to check the program and register to the event!
