As a central program point. Johanna Mair (a university professor at the Hertie School in Berlin, and editor of the Stanford Social Innovation Review) gave a keynote speech titled "Innovation and Scaling for Impact - How Effective (Social) Enterprises Do It!", explaining how successful social enterprises scale their impact and attain sustainable progress.

The program featured a variety of so-called “Showcases”, giving the various JKU communities an opportunity to introduce themselves.
