Yunus Social Business Graduates ’15

Monday, November 30, 2015

Fifteen entrepreneurs have graduated from the first ever Yunus Social Business (YSB) accelerator programme. The programme which was launched at the beginning of 2015 targeted a cross section of social entrepreneurs who were asked to submit their proposals.

The programme designed for visionary social entrepreneurs aims to grow their businesses as they create social impact in the communities they work with.

It was an intensive experience during which the entrepreneurs received expert coaching, mentoring, exposure to potential investors and partners.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Mr Patrick Bitature, the chairman, Private Sector Foundation and also social business entrepreneur, told the business minds that they are now standing on the threshold of moving their social business to the next level.
