5th Social Business Academia Conference

8th and 9th November

What started as an academia workshop session during the GSBS in 2010, has evolved into the Academia Meeting in 2011 and 2012, and finally into a full research conference on social business in 2013 and 2014. Since 2015 the event is a sole academic conference.

The two-days GSBS Academia Conference on 8th and 9th of November will bring together academics from all around the world who will present their papers and abstracts on social business.

A consultation meeting with academics will already take place in Bangladesh during the Social Business Day 2017 in July.

Young Challengers' & Pioneers' Meeting

The GSBS Social Business Young Challengers’ and Young Pioneers' Meeting will take place two days prior to the main event (4th and 5th November).

It is a pre-meeting for students and young professionals up to the age of 35 years to discuss the concept of social business, network and develop own social business ideas. The Young Challengers and Young Pioneers will have the opportunity to challenge the experts during GSBS with their questions and comments.
