Meet Our Founders

We are working on the topics of Open Social Innovation for several years. The journey of our two founders startet back in 2016, when both attended with their projects (Elya Tea and DOPDA) at an incubator program by Social Impact and SAP. After this program, the idea was born to start a network for entrepreneurs in the Rhein-Neckar region where both are located.

Over the years, both have worked together on various projects and finally decided to join forces with their ideas and found the Center for Open Social Innovation.
