Zarah Bruhn (Co-Founder of Social-Bee and Bring & Ring I Ashoka Fellow I Capital 40 under 40)
„To assume social responsibility with an entrepreneurial spirit for a diverse and colourful society in which everyone gets a chance“ – This is Social-Bee’s great vision.
After several internships and jobs in the fields of venture capital and start-ups, Zarah Bruhn founded the social start- up Social-Bee 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: Social-Bee takes care of all the bureaucratic work and supports its employees by offering them an opportunity to acquire further qualifications and participate in integration programs.
After founding Social-Bee during the refugee-crisis, the current corona-pandemic has led her to co-found bringandring.de, a platform to provide shopping assistance across Europe to minimise social contact and fight the spread of the virus.
