Business Fundamentals for Social Entrepreneurs

Need a Boost? 3-Day Workshop 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.

We are looking for applicants who:

  • Lead an existing for-profit, nonprofit, or hybrid enterprise

  • Are a early-stage enterprise (less than one year), who needs to develop a business model

  • Develop innovative solutions to provide sustainable paths out of poverty

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.
