As part of the first digital Skoll World Forum, Yunus Social Business hosted the ‘Business As Unusual’ webinar all about the power of social INTRApreneurship, with our partners the Schwab Foundation, HEC, INSEAD and Porticus.
While the world is struggling with the immediate logistical and medical impacts of the pandemic, our event yesterday highlighted the importance of building the resilient businesses of the future, capable of solving the global challenges we face. Purpose and sustainability more important than ever in this time of crisis!
Our stellar line-up of social intrapreneurs and academics talked us through their initiatives and gave practical insights on how to do the same within your organisation.
We also detailed the findings from our landmark study on corporate social intrapreneurship, concluding a year of research on 200 corporate initiatives, experiments, and sector mapping that Yunus Social Business has conducted with our partners and released at the World Economic Forum 2020. The webinar marked launch the next part of the ‘Business As Unusual’ research ‘Making The Case’. Download the report here!
