Swiss College responds to COVID by creating unique online social entrepreneurship educational programme and digital funding.

We recognise that there is a powerful movement at play here with today’s youth. Greta Thunberg, #Fridaysforfuture and the effects of COVID create a window of opportunity to move the business mindset forward.
Terra Unum College responds to COVID and Capitalism 1.0 by launching Swiss
Social Entrepreneurship Degree and funding programme

Interlaken, Switzerland – Terra Unum College Switzerland opened an entirely new kind of online college designed to empower Social Entrepreneurs by offering two unique benefits: A quality online education in social entrepreneurship as well as a unique framework to funding their new social venture. Since it’s launch, over 250 students have taken the course “Modern Social Challenges”. This illustrates an important Zeitgeist: the urgent need for online education during COVID and the increased interest students have about the transition towards sustainable business ventures in a post-covid world.

COVID has presented an opportunity for displaced students to reassess what they want to do with their future and many are realising that the current pandemic and “capitalism 1.0’s” response to it, has been a wake up call to action. Today’s generation more than ever is demanding to take ownership of a better tomorrow and believe that studying about sustainability and social entrepreneurship, is the key to re-designing consumerism.

Students are actively seeking flexible, mobile-friendly and relevant education which is outcome-driven and prepares them to immediately apply their studies day-one after graduation. Many students feel that an international social entrepreneurship education gives them a far broader and balanced learning experience, which may explain why so many students are looking to Switzerland and enthusiastically enrolling in Terra Unum’s degree and certificate programmes.

Nataliya Hertsovska PhD the college’s Dean of Students, has observed that the interest in Social Entrepreneurship has dramatically flourished during COVID.

“We recognise that there is a powerful movement at play here with today’s youth. Greta Thunberg, #Fridaysforfuture and the effects of COVID create a window of opportunity to move the business mindset forward.”

Interestingly, the college goes beyond viewing humanity’s social challenges purely academically. It has solved the problem how social entrepreneurial ventures are cultivated and get off the ground. Terra Unum has introduced a radical change to how disruptive sustainable products and services are funded through issuing its own Swiss sustainability investment cryptocurrency called HEIDICOIN, which not only funds education and research at the college, but also creates a funding mechanism for new profitable social ventures to rapidly bring them to market. “HEIDI” is an acronym for “Higher Education Innovation Digital Investment”, which will enjoy a highly anticipated initial crypto exchange launch on November 1st of this year.
