SBRC and Fukuoka city co-hosted Social Business RE: Start-up workshop @ Fukuoka city Start-up cafe, a place to support entrepreneurs.
This workshop aimed to be the first step for companies and business people having issues with their business financially, to improve their business model after learning about the positive cases with social business.

We can expect new Yunus Social Business Companies in Fukuoka to be born soon.
SBRC is planning to have some workshop series to focus on each project. Please look forward to announcements regarding our new series in the future.
