What is Bridge for Billions?
The Biniyog Briddhi: SIE-B Programme has teamed up with Bridge for Billions to offer a powerful digital ecosystem to incubate early-stage enterprises
We at the Biniyog Briddhi: SIE-B Programme are proud to bring Bridge for Billions into the fold. In so doing, we provide impact entrepreneurs with access to a powerful platform that will allow them to work on viable models for their companies and develop a tangible, ready-to-use business plan that can be downloaded as a PDF. During the entire process, they are supported by their mentors.
Bridge for Billions targets early-stage entrepreneurs and provides high value in several ways: (1) It gives the right tools and guidance to help early-stage entrepreneurs develop their companies / (2) It facilitates mentorship by providing the same tools as well as training to start-up mentors / (3) It eases the work of programme managers by allowing them to leverage a scalable and proven methodology, while having high visibility on the progress of their incubated communities
