The idea of social business as defined by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus is a growing movement globally. More and more social businesses are created with the clear focus on solving social problems in a financially self-sustainable way, addressing social problems within healthcare, environment, education, and many other areas.
During this webinar, Mr. Nima will share insights from his work at The Grameen Creative Lab, which has been co-founded by Prof. Yunus in 2009.
As the Head of Academia, Mr. Nima has a clear focus on bringing social business into universities. Within recent years universities around the world started to establish Social Business Institutes and Centers, Incubators and specific courses and programs. This webinar will present many ideas how universities can get involved in the social business movement.
