GSBI Mentors are trusted advisors to the social entrepreneurs they work alongside over the full course of the program duration. The GSBI selects mentors who, through their education, background, and experience have knowledge of the fundamentals of business planning and the challenges of executing on those plans. They also share in Santa Clara University’s mission to create “a more just, humane, and sustainable world.”

They are selected for their business acumen as well as their values, and are deeply committed to Miller Center’s vision to accelerate entrepreneurship to end global poverty and protect the planet. GSBI programs offer a platform for mentors to engage with impactful, transformative missions around the world, and lend their expertise to individuals around the world who often don’t have the infrastructure, frameworks, and networks we have at our fingertips in Silicon Valley.

GSBI helps social entrepreneurs focus, clarify, and scale their business through guided mentorship. GSBI programs provide a curriculum for mentors and social entrepreneurs to work through to develop and enhance the organization’s business components, but also to develop a relationship that allows for a powerful exchange of value on both sides. To learn more about what makes GSBI effective, read our whitepaper on the GSBI Methodology.
