We are looking for a next board to take on the challenge and organize the SBB in 2019. As a board, you are responsible for the entire organisation of the Sustainable Business Battle. This entails finding companies and students to participate, organizing an educative program for the students and a variety of events and finding a way to finance all initiatives.


What is in it for me?

The SBB is a non-profit generating start-up which was founded in 2017 by four students in Leiden. As a board member, you will get a lot of freedom to increase the impact of the SBB and to professionalize its organisation. You will meet and acquire many partners in the fields of business and sustainability and improve your entrepreneurial and organisational skills. Next to gaining valuable experience in how to deal with different stakeholders, project management and working in a team, you will also build a substantial network with different companies, the university, the municipality, and consultancies. And, if all goes right, you will be able to have a direct impact on the level of sustainability in Leiden, The Hague, or even beyond.


What are we looking for?

We are now looking for three out of five board positions, who will start on September 2nd:

The other two board positions will open again early September and start mid-October 2019:

If you want to apply for one of those functions, you may do so already now!

As a board member, you will meet at least once a week with the rest of the team and invest 10 hours per week in the SBB 2019 with a peak of workload in spring 2019.
