Story pulled from Financial Times.
Murad Al-Katib has been named EY World Entrepreneur of the Year 2017, not only for his success in building a business empire focused on providing vegetable protein to the developing world, but also for helping to feed refugees.
Mr Al-Katib said he was very proud to be accepting the award in an audience of other country winners whom he admired, but also used his moment on stage to tell the audience that he believed that labels such as social entrepreneurship were out of date.
“There’s just entrepreneurship,” he said. “Social cause is not only important for business, it’s essential.”
