Belief in a Collective Future

The 2015 GSBI Network Annual Meeting in Mexico City

The 2015 GSBI Network Annual Meeting in Mexico City

India, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Mexico – around the planet, we are working to accelerate global impact through social entrepreneurship. Based on twelve years of practical experience, we are using our GSBI® methodology to strengthen and scale social enterprises of all types that together impact the lives of millions.

  • GSBI Boost “Train-the-trainers” sessions help mission-aligned organizations apply Silicon Valley’s culture of innovation to social enterprises in their geographies and sectors.
  • Fr. Phil Cooke, our Jesuit in-residence, is bringing an innovative, entrepreneurial spirit to Catholic social justice projects. He is combining the powerful Catholic vision of service to the poor with the proven GSBI methodology to effect real change.
  • At the meeting of our GSBI Network, now numbering more than 22 universities and organizations, working groups on impact measurement, capacity development, and early-stage innovation formed. The Network shares best practices to scale collective impact.

The theme of this year’s Skoll World Forum in Oxford is ‘Belief’; our GSBI and Impact Capital leaders will join other delegates from the social, finance, private, and public sectors.  We believe that the Silicon Valley start-up experience we offer can help social entrepreneurs eradicate poverty. We believe that unlocking innovative investment strategies can serve those who need funds the most. And, we believe our students are the next generation of change agents who will help make it happen.

On April 30th, we are hosting Magis, an evening to celebrate the social enterprise movement and honor Lisa and Charly Kleissner of KL Felicitas Foundation and Matt Flannery of Kiva.  We hope to see you there to share in the joy of social entrepreneurship.

We are committed to openly sharing our experience and methods for accelerating global impact. Reach out to us to join our network and circle of friends!
