The forum aims to cultivate the localization of Yunus Social Business and encourage students to care for their community by coming up with innovative solutions for social problems. On March 23, 2018, YSBC at National University of Kaohsiung (NUK), hosted the first event of the “I am here!” forum, marking a new milestone for Social Business education in Taiwan. Following the success of the first event, YSBCs at other universities (NCU, CJCU, NQU, NPUST, and NKUST) will carry on with the “I am here!” forum through November 2018 to further promote Social Business entrepreneurship in Taiwan.

台灣尤努斯基金會遵循諾貝爾和平獎得主穆罕默德.尤努斯博士的指導,參考被譽為全球社企發源地──孟加拉尤努斯中心研發的Design Lab創業實驗室模式,架構Iam here創新創業幸福圈Venture Dialogue,符合台灣需求的資源共享及服務平台,以熱愛台灣為基軸,強調I am here—我在這裡、我在台灣的在地精神,期望輔育青年關懷在地社會發展,運用創意思考、實際以商業模式解決社會問題。高雄大學積極支持社會型企業的推廣,將I am here計畫結合校慶系列活動,舉辦國際論壇邀請泰國亞洲理工學院尤努斯中心主任Dr. Faiz Shah、澳洲拉籌伯大學尤努斯中心主任Dr. Gillian Sullivan Mort來台作為與談貴賓,探討如何跨越大學圍籬,走入社會倡議社會型企業。王學亮校長表示YSBC師生與會提案共學成為典範,將會在全國大專院校形成共學向上的漣漪效應。尤努斯基金會蔡慧玲董事長感謝高雄大學尤努斯中心及同學們的全力支持,承諾尤努斯基金會是YSBC後盾,一起發揮最大的社會影響力。

To promote Social Business in Taiwan under the guidance of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus, FYSBT replicated the concept of “Design Lab”, originally created by the Yunus Centre in Dhaka, to set up “YSBC Venture Dialogue” in Taiwan. Under a structure where resources and services can be shared, this platform is based on the love for Taiwan and focuses on localization (as expressed in the slogan “I am here!”). It aspires to educate youths on how they can contribute to the development of local communities and solve social problems through innovation and commercial ventures. NUK is a strong supporter of Social Business, and the university combined the “I am here!” forum with its anniversary festivities. The University invited two distinguished guests speak at the forum: Dr. Faiz Shah, Director of the Yunus Centre at Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Thailand, and Dr. Gillian Sullivan Mort, Director of the Yunus Centre at La Trobe Business School in Australia. The forum discussed the ways to promote the concept of Social Business beyond universities to the general public. Mr. Hsueh-Liang Wang, President of NUK, believes that the Social Business proposals developed at the YSBCs can start a ripple effect and initiate a dialogue on Social Business with other universities across the country. Philippa Tsai, chairperson of FYSBT, expresses her appreciation for YSBC at NUK, and all the students from NUK. She promised that the Foundation will continue to fully support their efforts in bringing about impactful changes to society.
