Experience in the field of educational funding and the implementation of the Income Share Agreement draws knowledge from three institutions: GLS Bank, GLS Treuhand and a student association. Together these members and institutions offer 55 years of expertise.
As decided at the Annual General Meeting in 2021, the CHANCEN Group is moving its registered office from Witten to Hamburg.
CHANCEN eG issues a bond together with GLS Bank to finance an additional 650 students.
The Income Share Agreement can make education possible for many people. With CHANCEN International gGmbH, CHANCEN eG establishes a non-profit subsidiary to offer financing in emerging and developing countries.
Olaf Lampson and Florian Kollewijn, previously on the Management Board of the SG, used their experience to grow the reach of the Income Share Agreements. Offering other students at Universities all over Germany equal opportunities and fair financing.
The Umgekehrter Generationenvertrag (Income Share Agreements in English) model was developed in 1995 by the StudierendenGesellschaft Witten/Herdecke e.V. Over 2,000 students have already benefited from free access to education. As former board members of StudierendenGesellschaft, the two founders of CHANCEN eG, Florian Kollewijn and Olaf Lampson truly believe in this financial model.
With CHANCEN eG, students and apprentices all over Germany have access to fair financing for their education. In addition, the GLS Treuhand is a committed partner. As a founding member and part of the supervisory board, Joachim Rang gives a valuable contribution through his extended network in the impact investing world and sound knowledge in ethical and sustainable investment.
