Building Social Business

Pioneering for Results

We are delighted to announce the Global Social Business Summit 2011.

Social business is spreading through all sectors of the economy, all over the world.
We are building a strong global community committed to tackling society's most pressing needs.

As the premier forum for the worldwide social business movement, the Summit brings together social business pioneers from corporates, civil society, academia and governments. Through an intensive program of talks, panels and workshops, it provides an occasion to share results, make connections and learn from others on the social business frontier – together with the Grameen Family.

The Global Social Business Summit will also launch a major new initiative to motivate young people around the world to help achieve the UN’s Millennium Development Goals by 2015.

We invite you to save the date for this year’s Global Social Business Summit from
10 – 12 November 2011 at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center in Vienna, Austria.

We look forward to working with you to put society back at the heart of business.
