In response to the CFLA call for applications for the ‘Innovation grants for Students, 2nd round’ programme, SSE Riga designed an educational programme and a startup incubator to promote Socially Responsible and Environmentally Sustainable Student Innovation (SRESSI).
While not everybody will identify as an entrepreneur, many people will be well-aware of various issues, inefficiencies, or problems that they come across in their everyday life. SRESSI is being designed in such a way as to provide students with a resource-rich platform to go and do something about those issues – to make a tangible contribution to the society they live in, and to the environment they are surrounded by; all the while developing a range of valuable entrepreneurial, managerial, and strategic skills.
The CFLA requirements stipulated a 15% private co-funding for SSE Riga application to qualify.
Alumni Association has supported the establishment of the program with EUR 3000 donation.
