Yunus&Youth exists to make the challenge of social entrepreneurship easier. Y&Y was inspired by the work of Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus and his belief that companies and entrepreneurs can engage in business models that create real, sustainable social impact. People around the world struggle with social problems: some lack access to safe drinking water while others struggle with unemployment or insufficient health services (to name a few). Here is where social business comes in. These early stage start-ups drive social change because their founders are close to the problems they’re solving and the communities they’re helping.
If you have started working on your social business and are dedicated to making it succeed, then you fulfill the main criteria. You must be under 35 years old, comfortable speaking and communicating in English and have access to stable Internet connection. You must also be able to commit to at least 5 hours per week on exercises that will help you improve your business.
Individuals from any country can apply for the program. There are no restrictions on country of origin or country of operations.
