The SBS`s Equation, is that it has been a formidable Journey and odyssey, which has been aided by a wonderful team, which taking as north in the heart and in our minds prof. Yunus’ s example, and Maital, Mandela, and many others, we have designed and realized a cradle of a large Social Business School and scientific and technological park that has for its mission change the way we see business to be the permanent new “Alexandria lighthouse” that will forge a new and great destiny, in knowledge, first for the youth of Chile, Latin America later, and why not to say, in many other parts of the world. All this vast work to do, invisible for many, obviously palpable and visible to others, it covers only half the equation that we have taken into account in the birth of this noble and humanitarian non-profit project. In our opinion, every impulse that is aimed at uplifting the human race can be represented by an equation that involves two bodies or well-defined fields: the first, composed of men and women, and the other by the scientific and technological material, those must learn to wield for the good of themselves and for all humanity. If, by chance, have the most advanced techniques and the most accomplished of knowledge are given to be beings not properly formed, the science and the technology will not be assimilated or, worse, will be used for purposes disordered dwarfed or reverse to serve as highly destructive means. Research concludes that, at the fair of human abilities, all you need is just increase up the amount of hours of work and application to transcend the levels of a mediocre performer on the violin, to reach the level of great interpreter. It's all about practice, practice and practice. Of course, it is, provided that they are merely repeating patterns of music designed, created and performed by others. That is why in order to add value you must teach to students also culture, art, music, history, philosophy, literature, dance, psychology, economics, social justice, human rights, peace, women empowerment, environmental awareness, business ethics, protocol, so on. Continuing with this example, we want players to train not only correct but also be distinguished performers. Although all reputable, there is a very large gap between Claudio Arrau, and excellent performer compared with a Vivaldi or Mozart which not only they were interpreters but they were also above all creators of beauty of timeless pieces of music.
