The Social Business Forum is one of the CEE most important events of its kind that has consistently attracted hundreds of participants from over 20 different countries. It presents the social aspects of business ranging from CSR to impact investments as well as social business as envisioned by the Nobel laureate Prof. Yunus. The development of sustainable business can be strengthened by encouraging the social side of the enterprise activities, which often creates innovative solutions as well.
The Social Business Forum emphasises the impact that enterprises engaged in socially responsible activities have on the environment in which they operate and their effect on the society.
It is an opportunity for organizations, institutions and business-oriented individuals to share ideas and experiences on business implementations that reinforce innovation and enrich the welfare and well-being of society.
