We’re currently recruiting our next GSBI® Online Accelerator Cohort for social enterprises focused on serving migrants, refugees, and human trafficking survivors
Last year, we launched the GSBI Social Entrepreneurship at the Margins (SEM) 6-month accelerator program for social enterprises that serve or are led by migrants, refugees, and human trafficking survivors. With the success of that program, we are now launching our second SEM cohort that will kick off in October 2019.

undocumented migrants, refugees, or human trafficking survivors,
provide infrastructure to address challenges facing these vulnerable populations,
are led by migrants or refugees.
Are you willing to commit 3-6 hours per week to complete program deliverables and work with mentors online?
