Growing and supporting social businesses to solve the world’s pressing problems
We work in two ways:
Philanthropic Venture Funds
We turn donations into investments in sustainable Social Businesses that provide employment, education, healthcare, safe water and clean energy to over 9 million people worldwide. As well as finance we provide growth support to help our Social Businesses create the most social impact possible.
Great corporate leaders see the world how it should be – and create what is missing. Our work helps them realise their vision through social business. We support them by creating purpose-driven innovations that help people escape poverty, get access to health care or live in a pollution-free environment.
We are very proud to announce today that Yunus Social Business has invested inBurn Manufacturing, in a deal that is expected to facilitate the expansion of BURN’s efficient cooking stoves across East Africa.
