Leading Social Enterprises
GSBI Alumni represent a wide variety of leaders in the social enterprise movement. Our alumni include founders of major institutions like Kiva, VisionSpring, and Sankara Eye Care, as well as rising stars like Galen Welsh of Jibu and Alloysious Attah of Farmerline.
GSBI Alumni receive access to a range of services designed to ensure that they can translate the lessons learned through the GSBI accelerator programs into real growth and impact. From a database of over 500 Impact Investors, to a directory of trusted service providers, to regional networking events with 700+ global GSBI Alumni, our alumni engagement and support services ensure that our social entrepreneurs don’t have to face any challenges alone.
GSBI Alumni represent a community of social entrepreneurs who have collectively raised approximately $1B ($480M post-GSBI accelerator programs), and improved, transformed, or saved the lives of 380M+ people (194M post-GSBI accelerator programs).
The GSBI program works. 93% of graduates from the 2016 GSBI Accelerator raised investment within 6 months and they were able to increase the reach of their impact by an average of 57% within 1 year of graduation.
