In 2011 a course was launched to offer students learning on how to plan and implement Junior Enterprises (JE) active in the field of sustainability and social entrepreneurship. The aim was both to offer practical teaching about sustainability, leadership, business planning, and to develop 4 JE. These JE are:

•A CO2 Compensation consulting company
•Solar PV company, aiming to install a 50 kWp plant at BOKU
•Junior Enterprise Hub to support the development of JE in terms of a logistic and knowledge service provider
•Development of a Green Bank account for students.

After the successful implementation of the first course, this successor course will continue the further development of the 4 JE mentioned above. Both practical input on marketing, business development and hands on development of the 4 JE is the aim of the course.
