Greetings from the Yunus Center at the Asian Institute of Technology! 

We believe that the power of the market can be harnessed to eradicate poverty. This can be done by using business practices to disseminate pro-poor technologies. We acts as a knowledge hub and an enabling platform to accelerate the spread of these technologies through social business and enterprise-led development.

YCA Invites Researchers to Join Thailand's Academic Network

Prof. Muhammad Yunus is creating a Global Social Business Academic Network. This network branches out to over 20 countries around the world through local Chapter Committees. As the Thailand Chapter coordinators, the Yunus Center at AIT is reaching out to academia, researchers, and individuals in universities who have shown an interest in social business. The main objective of this network is to link up people with similar interests with the hopes of facilitating partnerships and collaboration for joint research on enterprise-led development. This field is quickly expanding, and there are great opportunities for research to be conducted.


We would like to invite you to join us and be a part of this network. This means that you will soon receive an invitation to meet other registered members, and consequently we will begin a newsletter with updates on Thailand’s progress on research in the social entrepreneurship spectrum. We hope you will join us in this journey to seek and take on opportunities to grow the academic material on enterprise-led development in Thailand and the region.
