Yunus Sports Hub unleashes the power of social business to create local solutions in and through sport.
How we work
Inspired by Professor Yunus’ social business principles and the transformational superpower of sport, we believe we can all make a difference.
Our team members bring very diverse backgrounds and experiences but we all share one passion: sport & social business.
Our entrepreneurial spirit drives us to foster true creativity and innovation as a team.
We work fully remote. This allows us to grow a truly global team of experts while implementing concrete local actions.
And last but not least, we do it with joy!
Professor Muhammad Yunus is a Nobel Peace Laureate, Bangladeshi economist, and founder of the Grameen Bank, the world’s first dedicated microcredit institution for the poor. He is also the father of social business and of one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time.
We are a proud spin-off of GCL
Grameen Creative Lab (GCL) was set-up in 2009 by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus and his Creative Advisor Hans Reitz to serve society’s most pressing needs by promoting social business globally. GCL has taken an important role in the formation of the Social Business Movement by organizing the Global Social Business Summit and countless social business initiatives have emerged from it.
GCL is the front-runner of the Social Business Movement and uses its expertise, network and resources to bring social business to new areas. Several spin-offs have been created that remain part of the GCL family. In 2018, the Yunus Sports Hub and in 2019, the Yunus Environment Hub were launched, both experts in social business to bring solutions to the sports world and in the environment crisis. Together we make the impossible possible.
