When the voluntary sector meets business: the Stuttgart Market Place

Costs and savings


Clearly, the organisation of a Social Market Place requires financial and staff resources. While the first Stuttgart Market Place benefitted from support by GENO-Verband, the second event was a partnership between Stuttgart City Council, KPMG, the nonprofit organisation mehrwert and the Deutsche Bank. The direct costs of the second Market Place were about €8000 in total. 

While the project did not have the objective to bring about any savings in the public sector it produced a lot of added value. It is estimated that the almost 80 agreements will be translated into 1600 hours of volunteering time.
