Merging profit motives with public responsibility, social enterprise businesses are becoming the “new heart” of industry – worldwide.

Propelled by 2006 Nobel Peace Prize laureate  Muhammad Yunus, social business is a fairly new but upcoming concept which seeks to balance the interests of a profitable  model with a social mission.

Our video correspondent Elaine Jung, explores some of Berlin’s most promising international social businesses and the faces behind them. Till Behnke from Betterplace.org, Oliver Stark from Doonited, and Emanuel Schwartz and Simon Höher from Knowable.org take us on tour of their stories, motives and vision of a better world.
