About Us

Yunus Social Business (YSB) is a philanthropic fund for social businesses and venture builder for corporate social businesses. Co-founded in 2011 by Nobel Peace Laureate Muhammad Yunus, Saskia Bruysten and Sophie Eisenmann, our mission is to promote social business as a sustainable alternative to long-term aid, bridging the gap between business and philanthropy.

YSB is headquartered in Berlin with on-the-ground presence in Brazil, Colombia, India, Kenya and Uganda. Today, our social businesses already serve over 9 million people in emerging and developing countries with clean water, clean energy, healthcare and higher incomes.  

We are currently a global team of 50+ people with experience in entrepreneurship, consulting, venture capital, business incubation, finance and development cooperation. We also work with an amazing community of freelance impact and business consultants, design thinking experts, startup catalysts and mentors for our projects.
