Author: Social Innovation Europe

Magdas entered the European Social Innovation Competition in 2013 with an idea for a hotel that could help address the lack of opportunities available for refugees granted asylum in Austria.


With this concept and a rough business plan, the Magdas team presented their ideas for assessment and feedback by a community of social innovation mentors, judges, and fellow participants. Thanks to the Competition and the incredible hard work of the entire Magdas team, the hotel opened for business this year. Read more about their journey here.
