Full Summary: The University System of Georgia will host the Georgia Social Business and Microcredit Forum, Focusing on Youth Entrepreneurship, Economic Development, and Helping Communities in Georgia, on Tech's campus at the Ferst Center.

The University System of Georgia will host the Georgia Social Business and Microcredit Forum, Focusing on Youth Entrepreneurship, Economic Development, and Helping Communities in Georgia, on Tech's campus at the Ferst Center. The forum is part of the University System’s statewide economic development partnership efforts with other Georgia entities. Professor Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and founder of the microcredit concept, will deliver a keynote address.

The conference will bring 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. Student teams from colleges across the state will be challenged to develop business solutions to pressing local and state issues. Their application of these ideas will be judged and winners announced at the end of the day-long conference.

A full agenda is available online from the USG; register online for the conference beginning Oct. 6.
