Nobel Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus on Creating A Supportive Environment for Social Business

There are few people in the world that can make change and help other people to create change than the likes of Prof Muhammad Yunus, the founder of Grameen Bank. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 in his contribution in creating a new generation of entrepreneurs and also inspiring social entrepreneurs around the world.

Recently he was invited to National University in Singapore to give a talk on how to create a supportive environment for social business.

Addressing civil society and government bodies, Professor Yunus will illustrate how social business can play a partnering role in addressing the social needs of a country, and also suggest policy frameworks that will be conducive for the growth of such businesses.

This event was co-organised by the NUS Enterprise and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKY School).
