Yunus Social Business was founded in Germany in 2011 by Prof. Muhammad Yunus, Saskia Bruysten and Sophie Eisemann to expand on the success of social business from Bangladesh and ignite it around the world.
Around the same time, corporations began to show interest in the value of social business. YSB began working with corporations that were inspired to integrate social business into their business model – creating the first corporate social businesses.
Social businesses have deep experience in harnessing business tools to tackle big challenges like poverty and the climate crisis. Global corporations have the power to multiply the impact of social businesses.
YSB works with both sides, and believes that social businesses and corporations have something to learn from each other.
