3-Day Workshop for Social Entrepreneurs

GSBI Boost for Social Entrepreneurs

GSBI Boost packs core business lessons into a powerful 3-day workshop. We help local, early-stage social entrepreneurs learn business fundamentals, improve their strategic thinking, and articulate a business plan that demonstrates impact, growth, and long-term financial sustainability.

By the end of the workshop, participating enterprises have the strategies and materials to grow their enterprise in a financially sustainable manner and apply for the funding and capacity building programs they need to reach the next level of growth.

GSBI Boost was piloted in 2014 with support from eBay Foundation and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. By the end of 2016, we've graduated over 289 social entrepreneurs. 

We can adapt and deliver GSBI Boost directly to groups of social entrepreneurs in any sector and geography. We can also build in-country capacity to deliver GSBI Boost through our GSBI Xchange program.
