Peace Nobel Laureate Prof. Yunus at the Social Business Conference 2013

May 16, 2013

The second Social Business conference was held yesterday, with the keynote speech of Prof. Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank and author of “Social Business”.

His talk was insighful, very pragmatic and full of hope, as ususal. It was also different from last year speech, with new inspiring stories from US and Albania, among others.

As USI President Martinoli said in the opening speech, Prof. Yunus is a great example of how academia can bring a remarkable positive change in the society!
