Applying Entrepreneurship and Higher Education to meet Oregon’s social and environmental needs.

On October 1, 2012, OUS hosted the first Oregon Social Business Challenge. As part of the Oregon University System’s statewide economic development  and partnership efforts, this event showcased the outstanding talent and innovation of Oregon students.

The Challenge brought together economic development interests from all regions of the state to hear Professor Yunus’ social business concept of combining business know-how with the desire to improve quality of life.
