To promote Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus’ vision of social business, the Yunus Social Business Centre at National Central University (YSBC@NCU) has been hosting “Yunus Prize: Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition” in Taiwan since 2016.
The 2019 competition will be its fourth edition and will have several major changes to strengthen Taiwan’s connection with international social business communities. The most important change is that the competition will be conducted in English. YES! All parts of the competition, including reports, presentations and training activities, will be conducted in English. Besides, we cooperate with makesense, an international organization with headquarter in France, engaging social entrepreneurs in Taiwan to build local solutions with global partners for the Sustainable Development Goals.
