Together with experts from various sectors, we will explore the different dimensions of steward-ownership, ranging from its transformative potential for economy and society to the practical legal implementation and financing.


This symposium will bring together founders, entrepreneurs, investors as well as academics, legal experts and tax consultants who are interested in steward-ownership and its growing ecosystem.

Steward-ownership for Start-ups: How to grow and build thriving businesses without being a unicorn or exiting your company through aligned ownership and financing.
