“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

主題︰ Social Business Forum for Youths

Dear all

Grameen Creative Lab@NUS would like to invite you to the Social Business Forum for Youths on the 18 Oct evening.

What is it?
An opportunity especially for youths to discover and discuss the future of social entrepreneurship. Begins with a screening of “Bonsai People”, a documentary film that explores the work of Muhammad Yunus and his vision from microcredit to social business; Followed by panel discussions with eminent local Social Entrepreneurs.

The Film
Bonsai People: The Vision of Muhammad Yunus
What if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, and inequality? To some, it sounds impossible. But Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is doing exactly that. Yunus did his part to fight poverty by micro-lending $27 to 42 women, an effort which has now grown to 8 million women and 8 billion dollars. But he didn’t stop there; whenever he sees a problem he starts a social business – showing the world that complex problems sometimes do have simple answers. It’s not about handouts; it’s about a hand up.
