CIGI invites you to join us for a special afternoon presentation featuring a lecture by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus, Chairman of Yunus Centre and Founder of Grameen Bank, Dhaka, Bangladesh. In addition to his work in founding the Grameen Bank, for which he was awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in Peace, Prof. Yunus has devoted his recent work to spreading and implementing his idea of social business: a concept for businesses that strive to solve social problems, but are also financially self-sustainable. A social business pays back only its original investment and reinvests its profits in innovations or further growth that advance its social goals. In this lecture, Prof. Yunus will examine the history and the future of the field of social business.
