The Generationencafé Vollpension has been visited by more than 200,000 guests per year from all over the world at both of its sites in Vienna since 2015. This social enterprise employs 80 people in total, with more than half of them older than sixty, living alone and/or affected by old-age poverty. Vollpension BakAdemy developed out of several innovation workshops at the beginning of the corona crisis in March 2020, when the doors of gastronomy needed to stay closed. In addition to crowdfunding, this digital expansion helped the Austrian company get through this crisis. In October 2020, the platform went online after several months of development and with more than twelve hours of comprehensive on-demand video courses, and a comprehensive range of live baking courses. “More than 500 participants have attended our more than 150 courses, and increasingly more companies are also booking the courses. But private groups book our courses too, in order to meet up with their loved ones who do not live close to them, and to bake together in a relaxed atmosphere with one of our grannies”, says Julia Krenmayr, managing director of Vollpension. Additionally, Vollpension BakAdemy is part of Google Digital Garage.
