Building Social Business

Social Business is a visionary new dimension for capitalism, developed by Muhammad Yunus, the practical genius who pioneered microedit and, with his Grameen bank, won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, By harnessing the energy of profitmaking to the objective of fulfilling human needsm social business creates self-supporting, viable commercial enterprises that generate economic growth even as they produce goods and services that make the world a better place. It works because social business targets business opportunities neglected by traditional profit-maximizing companies, and invests any profits not in rewarding shareholders but in extending the ambition of the business. It is, in this way, not-for-shareholder capitalism.

In this book, Yunus shows how social business has gone from being a theory to an inspiring practice, adopted by leading corporation including BASF, Intel, Danone, Veolia, and Adidas, as well as entrepreneurs and social activists across Asia, South America, Europe and the United States. He demonstrates how social business transforms lives; offers practical guidance for those who want to create social businesses of their own; explains how public and corporate policies must adapt to make room for the social business model; and shows why social business hols the potential to redeem the failed promise of free-maker enterprise
