Last December, we launched on our Facebook page the game Social Business Youngsters, an app dedicated to people under 25 who wants to contribute to build a better world through social business initiatives.
The game is still going on, (until end of March) and almost 2000 people have already subscribed to be part of this innovative “call for projects”.
After several weeks, let’s have a look on the results !
What is blindingly obvious is that 2 countries are really implicated in submitting projects: France and Bangladesh. Sure, both countries are quite close to each other because of the initiative Grameen Danone Foods Ltd, but… are they becoming competitors? We need more weeks to shed light on this subject.
The other point is about Categories: it seems that social business youngsters are most interested in creating their own project or start-up than simply promoting or doing acamdecal studies about social business. Indeed, the category SB Create is the most declared by members of the game whereas SB Research and SB Promote are the less used. It inspires me one question: Where all the students writing a thesis on social business have gone? It’s time to take your chance !
Now, what can we say about the best schools involved in the game? Bangladesh is the star with 2 universities on the podium:
- Institute of Business Administration (IBA), University of Dhaka
