Designed to fill the gap between profit-making and human needs, social business applies entrepreneurial thinking to problems like poverty, hunger, pollution, and disease, creating self-supporting enterprises that create jobs and generate economic growth even as they make the world a better place.
Partnering with some of the world’s greatest corporations, Yunus and his Grameen Bank have already launched several social businesses that are addressing challenges like malnutrition, lack of potable water, and endemic illness in Yunus’s homeland of Bangladesh, while other organizations around the world are developing their own experiments in social business.
In this book, Yunus traces the development of the social business idea and explains its lessons for entrepreneurs, social activists, and policy makers, and offers practical guidance for those who want to create social businesses of their own.

A solution for most of social greatest challenges
Yunus clearly outlines a model that works in every scale with great examples. Furthermore, he describes the sphere of social business: academia, think tanks, action tanks, funds, etc. He also describes similar, but intrinsically different models like social entrepreneurship, social responsibility and social enterprise.
Its a great reading to get introduce and in deep to social business. As much as a guide to build a own social business.
