Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Professor Muhammad Yunus, was the guest of honor today at SE Forum’s SE Breakfast Seminar, held at the Stockholm offices of Sida. SE Forum’s Chairman of the Board, Shawn Westcott, moderated the discussion at Sida with Yunus, looking at how social entrepreneurship is creating the means to empower individuals and communities around the world focused. More than 300 people were in attendance.
Upon the release of his most recent book, Building Social Business (which was recently translated to Swedish by Bookhouse Publishers), Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus came to Stockholm to speak about his work to create a poverty-free world.
As the founder of Grameen Bank, Yunus pioneered micro-financing, which has helped build economically sustainable opportunities for the world’s poor. This work led to Professor Yunus and Grameen Bank earning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006.
SE Forum developed the program in partnership with Sida (The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) and Bookhouse Publishers.
In attendance during the discussion with Professor Yunus and Shawn Westcott were many of Stockholm’s social, business, and governmental leaders.
