What is Bridge for Billions?

A powerful digital ecosystem to incubate early-stage enterprises

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.

By embedding Bridge for Billions into our programme, impact entrepreneurs can 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. To learn more about this offer, click below:
