COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs, Initiated by YSB and WEF’s Schwab Foundation

September 16, 2020

Social Entrepreneurs and small and growing businesses (SGBs) have been acting as frontline responders during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing services to the most vulnerable populations. But the crisis shed light on the constraints & challenges they face. We call on on corporations, (impact) investors, funders, support organizations and government institutions to stand by social entrepreneurs as first responders to the COVID-19 crisis and as pioneers of a green, inclusive society and economic system.

Today, Yunus Social Business together with 60 leading actors in social entrepreneurship - under the umbrella of the World Economic Forum’s COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurship - published our COVID Social Enterprise Action Agenda providing practical guidance on what each can do to help social entrepreneurs play their part in fighting the pandemic and in charting the way towards recovery and a reinvention of our systems.

To read our Leaders on the Frontline Action Agenda and to join us in action:
