Streamed from TEDxMünchenSalon
Zarah Bruhn, originally from Bamberg, studied business studies and technology in Mannheim and Munich. During her semester abroad in Stockholm she took part in a refugees-welcome event. Realising that it’s nice to welcome refugees but not really helpful or sustainable for them in terms of integration, she returned to Germany with an innovative business plan in her mind. After several interns and jobs in the fields of venture capital and startups, she founded the social start-up „Social-Bee gGmbH“ together with her partner Maximilian Felsner in Munich. Germany’s first integration service provider uses the temporary employment model to integrate refugees into the labour market and society, reinventing it socially. Thereby, the missing bridge between refugees and companies is built. Social-Bee takes care of all the bureaucratic work and supports its employees by offering them an opportunity to acquire further qualifications and integration programs.
