Shaping the Social
Business Movement

As our Founder Professor Muhammad Yunus says,
We can create a world without poverty, because it is not the poor that create poverty

The Grameen Creative Lab’s vision is to serve society’s most pressing needs.The difference between rich and poor is not wealth, but opportunity. The poor are the world’s greatest entrepreneurs. Each day they must innovate in order to survive. They only remain poor because they do not have the opportunities to turn their creativity into sustainable income.

The Grameen Creative Lab was officially founded in January 2009 - but this was not its beginning. First footprints were left much earlier: In June 2007, Peter Spiegel, the head of the Genisis Institute for Social Business, introduced Hans Reitz to Prof. Yunus at the Vision Summit in Berlin. It was the start of a friendship. In February 2008, Hans Reitz undertook his first trip to Bangladesh to visit Muhammad Yunus and learn about Grameen and the idea of social business.
