06 February, 2017, Bengaluru: NS Raghavan Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (NSRCEL) at IIM Bangalore (IIMB) is hosting a talk on ‘Building Bridges – Social and Capital’ on February 8 (Wednesday), 2017, by Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus, under its initiative ‘NSRCEL Social’. Through ‘NSRCEL Social’, with the support of Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, NSRCEL is extending support to social impact not-for-profit ventures, to leverage its experience of nurturing early-stage ventures to build successful social ventures.
“Businesses today strive to inculcate social ethos in their vision and the social sector today is adapting best practices from the business world to achieve sustainable growth. The need of the hour is to develop a model and ecosystem to support the concept of Social Business – a business based on selflessness that is in all of us,” said Rajiv Sawhney, Chief Operating Officer, NSRCEL at IIM Bangalore
Prof Yunus’ talk will revolve around building and scaling social businesses. It will see discussions on the dwindling boundaries between the social and business aspects.
Prof Yunus is a globally recognized authority on evolving sustainable social business models. He is a social entrepreneur, banker, economist, and civil society leader who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for founding the Grameen Bank and pioneering the concepts of microcredit and microfinance. He has received several other national and international honours. He is a member of the Board of the United Nations Foundation. He has also served on the Global Commission of Women’s Health, the Advisory Council for Sustainable Economic Development and the UN Expert Group on Women and Finance.
