Social Business Champ 2014
“Yunus Centre” and “Social Business Youth Network- SBYN” is proud to announce the launch of “Social Business Champ 2014”. Social Business Champ 2014 is a Social Business plan competition designed for university level students to showcase their entrepreneurial skills and creativity to generate solutions for pressing social problems in a business way-the Social Business way! It challenges university-level students to use business principles to create sustainable, positive solutions to some of the world’s most challenging issues—poverty, education, environment, employment, health and development.
As Professor Muhammad Yunus points out, today’s generation of young people are more aware of social problems than ever before. With the power of technology at their fingertips, our young change makers possess all it takes to make an impact on their societies. So here is your chance to come up with ideas and business plans that will help fight a particular social problem.
In addition to the chance to win award from The Noble Laureate and funding to materialize the Social Business idea, SB Champ 2014 provides teams an unparalleled experiential learning opportunity—meeting and competing against top students, coaching and mentoring from the Social Business experts, exposure to an extensive network of professionals and companies, and the chance to present to judges and investors.
