REDEFINING THE NOTION OF SUCCESS
The initiative was born by identifying the need for a comprehensive and feasible framework for assessing the non-financial performance of start-ups.
START Global and the St. Gallen Symposium, two large organizations at the University of St. Gallen, have joined forces and partnered with the EPFL to establish the Return on Society and the Environment (ROSE) Framework.
We strive for a world where entrepreneurial success is synonymous with both financial return as well as social and environmental profitability.
In pursuit of this vision, our goal is to provide a framework for investors to recognize the sustainability and impact of their investments, and for startups to capture their effort and commitment.
