Heinz Frey creates DORV centers which become a one-stop-shop for citizens. These centers a local convenience store with postal, social and medical services to inspire local communities to stay in these areas and grow rather than desert them.
Social Impact: DORV-centers not only offer domestic goods and services but also a communal meeting point. Currently 10.000 citizens benefit from 12 centres. 50 DORV centers are planned in the next five years.
Investment need: The setup costs for the DORV center GmbH were necessary till the revenues from consultancy, licensing fees and training can cover all costs. One foundation and a business angel teamed up to provide the financial support.
