First Social Business School
The concept is very advanced for Latin American countries and poor nations in the planet, but this takes place in developed countries, and against all odds we inaugurated the first Social Business School ( ENS/SBS ) www.ensglobal.org in Constitucion - Chile, led by Bernardo Javalquinto economist from the University of Maryland, Felipe Ribbeck, Electrical Engineer and members of Board, together with the President of the Maule Technological Institute (CFTM ) www.cftdelmaule.cl , Carlos Francisco Letelier, have taken an important step in this initiative supporting the ideas of Prof. Yunus to solve the Global Social Problems. Better yet is the first to issue a Certificate / Diploma and MBA in Social Business in the world. Each step is historic since is the First Social Business MBA program issued on the planet. We should feel very proud to be the first (founders) to clone and translate the ideas of Nobel Peace Prize Prof. Yunus to hundreds of students to eradicate poverty and change the way we do business and the economy being more humane and also that expands worldwide. Universities, institutions, organizations and people are joining this cause. Constitucion is leaving a legacy to the Maule Region and humanity. This has been a formidable ordeal, which supported by a wonderful team of people, which north is carrying as the heart and the brain’s of people the initial example of prof. Yunus and many more celebrities in the world, we have designed a large lighthouse of scientific and technological knowledge, we call it the “the new Alexandria lighthouse” to be the permanent beacon to illuminate and forge a new and high destiny; first for the youth of Constitucion, Chile and Latin America and later, why not say, in many other parts of the world.
Everything here, obviously invisible to many; is palpable and visible to others, covers only half of the equation we have considered in the creation of this noble and humanitarian nonprofit project. Our concept, every impulse that has designed to uplift mankind, can and would represent a equation that involves two bodies or well defined fields: first, composed by men and women, and the other by the material of science and technology, we must learn to wield those for own good and for all humanity.
If, by chance, the most advanced techniques and the most accomplished of knowledge are delivered to beings not properly formed, the science and the technology is not be assimilated or, even worse, will be used for purposes dwarfed and misled or disorder their purpose serving highly destructive. Research centers, conclude that, at the fair of human abilities, enough is to raise the share of hours of work and application to transcend poor levels of a violin performer, and arrive to the degree of great interpreter. It's all about practice, and practice. Clear that is that, always concerned to merely repeat patterns musical devised, created and performed by others. Following this example, we want to be not only good interpreters, but also notable creators. Although all respectable, there it is a very larger gap between Claudio Arrau, excellent interpreter and a Vivaldi or Mozart that their mastering interpretation also transcend above all timeless musical pieces creators beauty in history. We have the same zeal in the structuring of the first body equation, i.e. the intrinsic perfection of our students, in order to have access to traditional instruction, they are allow to freely study of what they feel is right for them, being able to take the dark or obsolete, and become visible all of those treasures useless and sleep inside the master piece. It is the proper task of a Buonarroti, who with the chisel discarding what is left, in block of a Carrara marble, gives birth to the Grand Moses or David also ignored, and slept on the stone. In short, we want students who can think who are aware of themselves and transform in real and efficient creators. Therefore, the equation is complete when learners are have also delivered notions of ethics and moral, with courses in philosophy, art, history, human rights, anthropology and many more, then the equation will be complete for the beginning to understand Social Business. They all ask, and what is a Social Enterprise? Social enterprise is a business driven by a cause. In a social business, the investors / owners gradually recover the money invested, but cannot take all profits and/or dividends beyond an ethical point. The objective of the investment is purely to achieve one or more social objectives through the operation of business, there is a gain that is desired by the investors but to certain point; they can continue investing or leave. The company must cover all costs and benefits, while achieving a social objective, such as health assistance for poor housing, financial services, poor nutrition, malnourished children, clean drinking water supply, the introduction to renewable energy, environment, climate change and more, in a normal business enterprise, but that benefits society.
Seven Principles of Social Business:
1. Business objective will be to overcome poverty, or one or more problems (such as education, health, access to technology and environment) which threaten people and society.
2. Financial and economic sustainability
3. Investors recover investment they can continue or leave
4. When investment amount is amortized, and the company benefits some may stay with the company for expansion and improvement.
5. Environmentally conscious
6. Workforce with better working conditions and salaries higher market
7. And make it enjoyable
The concept of social business, "By defining entrepreneurship in a larger sense we can change the character of capitalism radically” - Prof. Yunus.
Make more humane capitalism. In our economic system, at the present there are two main approaches in organizations. The first is the private sector, where companies sell
products or services to make money. However, there are issues important in our societies that are not covered by the private sector, and they do not offer opportunities for profit. This usually leads to government interventions to create legal and institutional frameworks to promote the common good and to protect the interests of the weak members of society. When governments and markets reach their limits, the charities can fill the void. The problem is, of course, that the system does not work well enough. We live in a world of terrible injustice and widespread poverty. Governments and charities have the will to improve, but lack of efficiency and innovative capacity of the private sector. Why not combine the both sides? We follow normal business methods with the task of solving social problems such as poverty and create – The social enterprises! It will be a completely new type way of making business. Until now it has always been self-centered, founded with the purpose of making money. Unlike traditional business social business operates for the benefit of social needs enable companies to operate more efficiently, productive and competitive. The social enterprise provides the necessary framework for to all of us to address social problems by combining know-how with the desire to improve the quality of life. Therefore, in Instead of being self-centered, social business has to do with others. This method has demonstrated the effectiveness of this new type of business: it is clear to focus on poverty eradication, combined with their extreme economic sustainability, and has generated numerous models with incredible growth potential. Constitution opted to replicate the paradigm that is being applied in the world successfully.
