ss was sufficiently important to personally champion initiatives and travel to Wolfsburg to share their experience. Emmanuel Faber (Danone), Jurgen Hambrecht (BASF), Omar Israk (GE Healthcare) and Herbert Hainer (Adidas) have all been moved by Yunus. Beyond being a source of social good, social business makes good business sense.
For Faber, ///see www.danoncommunities.com ///it infuses the organization with a “new breath of life”, encourages innovation and boosts staff morale. Danone is experimenting worldwide with over 30 different social businesses.
Hambrecht/ BASF views social business as a low cost way to learn about a new market (Bangladesh, where they sell malaria nets). Is it just a market entry strategy? Time will tell.
Social business is getting a lot of traction at GE. For Omar Israk, the current CEO of GE Healthcare, the investment in a maternal care program in Bangladesh is minuscule compared to its potential benefit. It costs far less than developing a new MRI machine, yet it should have a greater impact on society.
I spoke with several large company representatives at the Summit. Many are developing a business case for social business. Others are setting-up separate social business units. Small entrepreneurs are also attracted to the concept- like any start-up, securing the initial capital is a challenge. Fortunately, venture social capital funds are being created and there is even talk of developing a social capital exchange

Professor Muhammad Yunus speaks at the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit, a three-day event that took place from October 31 to November 2, at Nice in France. The G20 YES is held with the support of French President Nicolas Sarkozy. In the three days before the G20 Summit, the event brought together delegations of young entrepreneurs from all the G20 member nations.
The current world crisis calls for an immediate broadening of the scope of the G20, said Professor Muhammad Yunus at the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit in France.
"It must not be a political forum with solely an economic and financial agenda anymore. Creating a social agenda for the G20 is now of utmost importance," said the Nobel laureate at the summit that took place from Monday to Wednesday.
"I had the privilege to participate last year in the presentation to President Sarkozy of France of a report on the social aspects of globalisation, as preparatory work for the French Presidency of G20 in 2011," he said.
Yunus said given the current structural issues in a number of European and other countries, he is convinced that it is even more important that G20 puts a priority on social issues.
He said as Presidency of the G20 will now be held by Mexico, he would like to warmly and personally thank and applaud President Calderon of Mexico for his confirmation that the Mexican Presidency of G20 will definitely carry on moving the agenda forward on the critical task of reducing the inequalities in the globalisation process.
"As 'occupy Wall Street' movements grow in protestation against the dominance of finance over the world's economy and in light of the widely-spread youth unemployment in OECD countries, I propose that “social business” should be brought to the agenda of G20, as one of the concrete and effective solutions to be considered by the countries for immediate implementation so as to guide capitalistic investment towards social value and jobs creation, rather than sheer profit maximisation strategies.”
He believes the G20 group of countries should be enlarged to G25, as he is convinced that poor countries (one from each continent) should have a say in the global agenda which they are part of.
Their problems are inter-related with others, and their proposals of solutions should be considered by the most economically advanced countries in making global decisions.
According to him, a G25 would be a big step toward ensuring that global social issues are raised, and implementation of millennium development goals is fully shared on the global agenda. And finally, because fighting poverty together is the only way to bring long lasting peace in this world.
“I am (an) entrepreneur myself. I started by creating a bank, Grameen Bank, and then moved into a wide number of businesses, all with a social purpose: Grameen Nursing College, Grameen Eyecare Hospitals, Grameen Shakti, etc," he said.
He said microcredit has shown a way to empower women into entrepreneurship. Grameen Bank proved to the world that entrepreneurship is the solution to poverty.
"Building on 30 years of experience, and with now more than eight million borrowers of Grameen Bank, I can say that I have always considered young entrepreneurs to be the most effective solution for the future," Yunus added.
He said G20 YES is a fabulous initiative, gathering so much energy and momentum from all over the world. "Because of their creativity and leadership, provided that they commit to share the value they create, these 400 young entrepreneurs in this room can change the world," the professor added.
He is also a member of the Millennium Development Goals Advocacy Group, advising the secretary general of the United Nations.
The Nobel laureate said this next generation of young people should be handed over the process of the MDGs as soon as possible.
"These goals need to become theirs, in order for them to create the world which they want to live in. Surely entrepreneurs have a key role to play in fulfilling MDGs, if they are committed to the social value created by their companies, and social business can be part of the solutions."…

Claims in the late 90′s and early 2000′s that technology would close gaps in access to quality education proved false.
Disruptive innovation currently underway in education is different in that it is focused on meeting student needs and providing a superior, individualized learning experience while reducing cost and increasing access.
With much of the core lecture content delivered through technology, the classroom and campus experience can be radically transformed to focus more collaborative, interactive and experiential.
From 2001-2003 as a Senior Executive at Hewlett Packard I chaired a working group of the UN Information and Communications Technology Task Force. Our goal was getting technology into the hands of underserved populations around the world to improve education, health care and economic development. NIIT’s Chief Scientist, Dr. Sugata Mitra had received international acclaim for his famous “hole-in-the-wall” experiment in the New Delhi slum of Kalkaji, fueling the belief that if kids had access to the internet they would essentially educate themselves. Technology companies, foundations and development agencies invested heavily in computers and Internet access but the results were disappointing. The technology was not sufficiently integrated into the educational experience. On visits to rural schools in Africa and India I was often taken to computer labs in locked and shuttered rooms with rows of idle computers protected under plastic covers. Curious students following me on my tour peered in from the door to see the carefully guarded spaces they were not welcome to enter.
Since 2006 I have been on the d.school faculty at Stanford teaching innovation through user centered design and experiencing the current disruption of education from the inside. This unusual background gives me complete confidence that the technology-enabled transformation currently under way WILL radically improve access to high quality education across the globe. Here’s why.
From my vantage point, Sal Khan lit the match igniting the current blaze of innovation. In 2004 while working as a hedge fund analyst in Boston and helping his cousins in New Orleans with their math, Sal started posting lessons on YouTube. Surprisingly, his cousins preferred “YouTube Sal” to the live version and the videos attracted a broader audience. Incorporating insights gleaned from his cousins and other viewers, Sal made more lessons. In 2009 he left finance to transform education. In early 2011 Sebastian Thrum, a Google employee and Computer Science professor at Stanford heard Sal Khan give a TED talk about the Khan Academy’s advances since those first videos. Sal described lessons structured to allow students to progress through a knowledge map, incorporating quizzes and exercises to require mastery before advancing to the next level. He talked about the flipped classroom pilot where the Khan team and second to seventh grade teachers collaborated to design dashboards allowing the teachers to observe each student’s progress and intervene if a student was stuck or pair them with another student who could offer peer mentoring. He showed the extensive catalog of lessons and tools for students, teachers and coaches available for free on the Khan Academy site. He marveled at the impact of incorporating gaming technology like badges and leader boards to provide motivation and feedback. Thrum was captivated and decided to launch an experiment with his fall Artificial Intelligence course at Stanford, offering a parallel online version free to anyone. 160,000 students in 190 countries enrolled. Most notable was the fact that only 30 of Thrum’s 200 Stanford students showed up in class that quarter. They loved his lectures but found the online learning experience superior.
“Social entrepreneurs focusing on the underserved can move quickly to create the future of education. Those around the globe with the least access to education today may be the first to fully benefit from the breakthroughs enabled by the innovation that is afoot.”
The experiment’s overwhelming success led Thrum to launch Udacity in January 2012. In April two other Stanford CS professors launched Coursera with financial backing from top tier Silicon Valley VC firms. In May Harvard and MIT launched the third major MOOC (massively open online course) player, EdX. Disruptive innovation was unleashed with the ecosystem of the Silicon Valley behind it to deliver educational content in a high scale, low cost model while providing a deeply interactive experience to learners akin to one-on-one tutoring. In a pattern that we’ve seen many times before when technology disrupts the existing model, the core innovations exposed new gaps that needed to be filled and entrepreneurs began emerging to fill them: start-ups like Proctoru, delivering online proctoring services to enable trustworthy online test taking and Piazza, an online discussion board to manage class Q&A. Suppliers of web and computer based curriculum are also proliferating, using technology to improve the effectiveness or efficiency of delivering fairly standard content as well as to transform the pedagogical approach.
Now the real excitement can begin, as the door is open for the radical reinvention of the classroom and campus experience. As Clayton Christianson, the Harvard Business School professor and acclaimed disruptive innovation expert has observed, the most transformative disruptors often begin serving consumers who are not targeted by established players. This seems to be happening in education. Some of the most cutting edge work in K-12 is being led by social entrepreneurs starting new private schools to eliminate the achievement gaps among underserved students, like Rocketship Education in the US, Spark Schools in South Africa and Innova Schools in Peru. These organizations are taking advantage of the full range of innovations available, incorporating technology in curriculum planning and delivery, classroom management, teacher training and parent communication to create new models for providing excellent, affordable K-12 education.
In higher education, one of my favorite examples is the African Leadership Academy, founded by two Stanford MBAs with the goal of developing the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leadership for Africa. They recruit extraordinary 15-18 year olds from all 54 African nations and around the world into a two-year residential program in Johannesburg and a lifelong comradeship. Their selection criteria, blend of intellectual growth and hands-on leadership development and their approach to connecting and empowering the community of ALA students and graduates are atypical and extremely inventive. ALA readily incorporates the best new technologies (like MOOCs) and continually iterates in collaboration with their students. They are already delivering many of the things that Stanford undergraduates talk about when we ask them how they would like the campus experience to change: more meaningful and structured ways to connect with peers and faculty who share their intellectual passions, more experiential learning opportunities, deeper mentorship from faculty and peers.
While established institutions in higher education and K-12 are participating in the revolution that is underway, it challenges many of their core assumptions and operating paradigms and significant resistance must be overcome. Meanwhile social entrepreneurs focusing on the underserved can move quickly to create the future of education.
Those around the globe with the least access to education today may be the first to fully benefit from the breakthroughs enabled by the innovation that is afoot. Keep an eye on this space…or jump in!

e Economist's pro-youth economist, Norman Macrae, first called for Entrepreneurial Revolution to solve the crisis of abusing youth in South Africa in 1968. it wasn't until his xmas day 1976 survey of Entrepreneurial Revolution that Entrepreneur became the hottest word in the lexicon of pro-youth economics. Since The Economist was founded 170 years ago to end hunger and prevent economists from abusing youth's futures, it is always jolly useful to question anyone who claims to be an entrepreneur what future history of mapping the e-word they come from

2 incidents are worth reporting before we move forward
1972 was the year Norman first saw hundreds of youth interacting around an early digital network. This, he concluded, would be the basis of the greatest human revolution of all time- even greater than the industrial revolution's steam engine or the earlier communications revolution of the printing press. Norman had been tutored by Keynes that because economists control how man designs big systems, elderly economists pose the greatest risk to the futures youth most need. From The Economist - portal of the first global viewspaper- (youtube from Boardroom of The Economist) , Norman was was determined to quiz such macroeconomists - and all the biggest decision-makers who sponsor them - ahead of time as the revolution of the net generation blossomed.
For those statisticians among us Norman's 1972 survey of the next 40 years clears the way ahead by listing every disastrous mistake that 20th c economists had so far spun (and needed urgent reconciliation if the 2010s was in Norman's 1972 to be the decade the global financial system collapsed) -reference Online Archives of pro-youth economics at The Economist
Which if we designed systems bottom-up and collaboratively would make the 2010s the most productive, sustainable and heroic times for youth to live anywhere, but if systems were spun wrongly would make 2010s the start if orwell's big brother end game - destruction of more than half of the world's population and planet within a few generations.
Norman from his first 25 years of editing economic leaders for The Eomist had seen the pollution of almost every construct that his heroes like Adam Smith, Keynes and James Wilson had mapped. In particular the television ad age had ended public service realities of democracy and destroyed the community transparency that Adam Smith had coined the term free market to embody. Norman chose the word entrepreneur as the most pivotal element of pro-youth economics chuckling that even as the most virulently anti-youth speculators and politicians adopted the word - they would have difficulty fully erasing its 1800 French origin as cutting off the heads of those who would monoplise people's , nature's and societies' productive assets.
Most adjectival forms of entreprenurship coined since 1976 were inspired knowingly or unknowingly by Norman's ER
First came Drayton's Social Entrepreneur in 1978. Two years later Norman was celebrating intrapreneurship with Gifford Pinchot- the first open investingation of how should syste designsof the world's biggsets companies change whene economiese are driven by service value multipliers not comsuming up things.
Norman's father-in-law worked for quarter of a century reconciling british empire with Gandhi's bottom-up whole truths of sustainable community design - so spiritually (and cross-culturally) there is no gap between Drayton's concept of how to save the world and Norman's. However economically, Norman believed in transparency of sustainable financing of any organisation, Very few of Drayton's choices of social entrepreneurs matched that criteria until the odd accident around 2003 of Jeff Skoll asking Drayton to co-publish 16 hours of videoa around 6 world scaling entrepreneurs - 2 entrepreneurs of skoll's choice - Yunus and Abed - and 4 of Drayton's - himself, the Brazilian change agent Grajew, the transparency advocate Peter Eigen and drayton's choice of a advocate for factory workers Tepper-Marlin.
It is very hard for those who have made a career of getting to the very top to be activists of Entrepreneurial Revolution, and this applies especially to academics and policy makers. For this reason we rather wish Drayton's choice of a Brazilian had been Bula not Grajew -because is an exception among almo0st all those in highest office during the 2000s. Before becoming president of Brazil , Bula did amazing work in supporting water activists at world social forums. On becoming president, he tirelessly made overnight journeys from the world social forum in Brazil to the world economic foru in Switzeralnd. One consequence was that Scwahb felt compelled to start up his own stable of social entrepreneurs. Another consequence was Brazil started to be seen as a leader of various clusters of nations doing much more change than the G8 - the BRICS remains the most visible example of this act of Bula.
We love those who value transparency - but it is unclear that the world bank pedigree of Peter Eigen ever put him in a position to massively and collaboratively link youth to transparency mapping and networking. Tepper-Marlin appears to be a brethren legal spirit of Drayton - and this may explain why she is the least visible entrepreneurial revolutionary of all 6 skoll picks in 2002/3
For 3 years yunus tried to network with social entreprenurs - up and down ashoka and across the early world championships hosted by skoll. He decided their lack of business-sustaining model was a great error- and started his own tribe of social business entrepreneurs. It took another 7 years before he returned to skoll. During the same period, Larry Brilliant's teenage friendship of Drayton and Gandhi, caused ashoka fellows to have unprecedented access to the start up of google.org. Fortunately the world has now moved on - with Brilliant himself helping Skoll on the greatest compound risk challenges that whole truth ER leaders face and franchising ilab as a hub in countries that most desperately need such brilliance.

By 2013 skoll had established a track record of being best at rewarding open education scaling by pro-youth entrepreneurs. Edu can free youth with even more massively exciting social business entrepreneur heroes than those whom were globally positioned as being mainly bankers for the poor. While the first 42 years of bangladeshi's entrepreneurship has never separated pro-youth education from pro-youth banking, very few American fans of microcredit (even those claiming to fund for yunus) have wholly understood how entrepreneurially valueless microfinance is when separated in any community from education…
