Equal educational opportunities to all
Entrepreneurs for Knowledge works with non-profit organizations worldwide to give children in underserved communities the opportunity to receive a quality education.
All of our personal and business successes, as entrepreneurs and founders, arose because we had the chance to go to school — to learn how to read, write, and choose our own fields of interest. Not all children have the opportunity and the privilege to receive a basic education. Therefore, we’ve come together to join forces and provide free support for companies through professionals in the development aid sector. With the right support, such a philantrophic project can become a great experience for the whole company.
Initially, our school initiative was under the CSR umbrella of Acronis, called the Acronis Cyber Foundation. As we could see a strong interest from other partners towards the school projects, we decided to create Entrepreneurs for Knowledge gGmbH – a nonprofit service for companies to create educational opportunities for underprivileged children. Through this service offer, we can increase the impact and scale of school projects and give as many children as possible the chance to gain access to knowledge and break the cycle of poverty.
“We believe in the power of partnership. Together with our partners, we are building a better future for the children in developing countries and providing the companies that do well to do good. Participating in charity projects makes the business team stronger and gives them an additional purpose to do better at their work.”

School is where the path to knowledge and opportunity begins. Technology is the modern language of opportunity, but without a basic education, no one can learn that language. Schools built by Entrepreneurs for Knowledge will provide the infrastructure where students can acquire the educational skills for those opportunities, regardless of their social, economic or cultural background.”
