Why a new social network? Why

To connect socially minded individuals, social businesses and enterprises, producers and sellers in an environment that puts people closer to what’s going on.

SBW today offers the following values:

A noise free environment for socially minded networking. Social networks have been around for a while and have transformed the way people connect to each other, but have not done much for improving the quality and depth of these connections. There may actually be evidence of the contrary.
The only commerce that matters is the one that adds value to society. SBW promotes social entrepreneur by putting them closer to individuals interest in socially minded consumption.

Opportunities = Knowledge = Ideas. SBW is based on the tenet that the knowledge that matters is in people’s imagination and ideas. As Prof. Muhammad Yunus keeps saying, it is important to develop one’s vision of the world. And this is what SBW promotes, and does it by promoting sharing of ideas.

There are many other things SBW has to offer, and part of that will come out of what we can imagine together. was born...
