The foundation

The Eberhard von Kuenheim Foundation was established by BMW AG in 2000 in honour of the company’s longstanding CEO and Supervisory Board Chairman Eberhard von Kuenheim. Its mission is to promote entrepreneurial thought and action – beyond the business context. Under the motto freude am neu:wagen, the Eberhard von Kuenheim Foundations develops, tests and supports new models aimed at tackling current issues confronting society. In collaboration with selected partners from business, science, politics and the non-profit sector, it runs concrete projects that create space for social innovation and responsibility. After completion of the pilot phase, the projects become independent and aim to take effect as regularly established programmes.

Through its work, the foundation sees itself as a producer of space for social responsibility.
