Validate Your Business Model

GSBI Online is a six-month, virtual program for early-stage social entrepreneurs in the validate stage. We connect you with seasoned, executive mentors who bring Silicon Valley principles and expertise, who will help you create a business plan, and come up with a strategy to grow your enterprise in a sustainable way. 

We seek applicants who:

  • Lead an existing for-profit, nonprofit, or hybrid enterprise
  • Are an early-stage enterprise (1-3 years) and ready to develop a business plan and test assumptions
  • Develop innovative solutions to provide sustainable paths out of poverty
This course has cemented my confidence on how to successfully run a social enterprise. I have already commenced the journey to turn my enterprise around and implement the business model developed as a result of participating in the GSBI Online program. Keep up doing the great work of changing the world for the better!
