Nobel Peace Prize laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus defines a social business as “a business that is created and designed to address a social problem”.
These cause-driven businesses strive to create real change in the world in areas such as healthcare for the poor, feeding malnourished children, providing safe drinking water and developing renewable energy.
While social businesses do make a profit in order to sustain their platform, the mission behind their organization is to solve a specific social issue.
Here at Tembo we’re extremely passionate people, not just in our own lives, but especially when it comes to the businesses we support. Just about anyone can turn a profit, but to be profitable while making the world a more positive place to live…
Well that’s something we can seriously get behind!
We take great pride in the businesses we provide value for. It’s important that our values align with those of our clients and we’ve found that social businesses care about what really matters.
Our mission is to build success with these organizations in order to create a sustainable ripple effect that will radiate across the globe.
