Yunus Social Business Turns 10 Years Old!

April 25, 2022

At YSB, before diving headlong into heavy topics in our meetings, we like to start meetings with a fun fact about ourselves. So, here's a fun fact about YSB: This year, we turn 10 years old!

We are taking this opportunity to highlight and celebrate the inspiring partners in our community, reflect on the valuable lessons we've learned along the way and look forward to designing the next decade. 

YSB has turned 10, and we'd like to celebrate with you!

There are a number of ways you can keep updated and get involved in our 10 Years celebration:
