“We live in exciting times – an era when the world is ripe for the kind of amazing, positive change that social business can create.”
Prof. Muhammad Yunus |Building Social Business|


The Grameen Creative Lab (http://www.grameencreativelab.com/) is getting ready to start the Global Social Business Summit 2011. The Summit, now in its third edition, wants to bring together social business pioneers from corporates, civil society, academia and governments. Yes, governments! At stake is the pursuit of the Millennium Development Goals. Through an intensive program of talks, panels and workshops, the summit will provide an occasion to share results, make connections and learn from others on the social business frontier.

Global development need not be the realm of governments' policy. It can happen through the engagement of millions of stakeholders. For this reason, the summit will see participants that jointly represent a pioneering link between entrepreneurial commitment, academic knowledge and social creative power to solve urgent social issues. That is why selected leaders, experts and representatives of foundations, NGOs, international organisations from the global Grameen movement, as well as from politics and society, are invited. 

This event will take place from 10 – 12 November 2011 at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center in Vienna, Austria. To follow the happenings of the summit, use the links below and keep checking SBW's pages.
