Impact First is my Key Driver. With Zarah Bruhn, Co-Founder & CEO, Social-Bee
Bruhn is the rising star of Germany‘s social entrepreneurship scene.
The award-winning founder and CEO of Social-Bee is Ashoka Fellow and was
recently chosen among Capital magazine’s Top40under40. Zarah is
passionate about social innovation, purpose economy and diversity,
spreading her message through TED talks, keynotes at major conferences
like Bits&Pretzels or exclusive C-Level events. In 2015, she
recognized the need for sustainable integration assistance for refugees –
to act beyond first aid measures. This meant, making it easier for
refugees to enter the labour market and to support companies in their
employment and integration. To this end, she revolutionized the model of
temporary work in a social way, as an intermediary employer who takes
care of the refugees and carries the risks until permanent employment.
Zarah majored in business & technology, earning her Master’s degree
at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). During her career in
start-ups and cleantech venture capital, she was particularly fascinated
by how entrepreneurial approaches can be used to meet social
challenges. As a female founder she strives to empower other women for
entrepreneurship. Her aim lies in the connection of two worlds, the
economy and the social sector: How to succeed in the sustainable
transformation of business models and value chains?
