GSBI Video and Social Entrepreneur Interview coverage for CNN iReport and Youtube
Read about the great works of GSBI on sites such as the World Bank and Santa Clara University. Every year some of the brightest people in Silicon Valley from major corporations such as Microsoft and innovative startups come together to share their knowledge and listen to the latest world changing innovations. The program is here to help fund and teach Entrepreneurs around the world how to further grow and scale their entrepreneurial efforts.
It was an honor attending this event and speaking with those having a real impact on the world.
GSBI is a great resource from Santa Clara University to connect Social Entrepreneurs with funding and leadership expertise. Their goal is to reach a billion people positively, it very closely resembles the mission that I have crafted for Global Good Networks and wish to carry through. Right on GSBI!

About the GSBI
Science and Technology for the Underserved
Launched 10 years ago, the Global Social Benefit Incubator (GSBI™) is the signature program of the Center. The GSBI combines a proven curriculum with individualized mentoring by Silicon Valley leaders to help social entrepreneurs build their businesses and amplify their impact. So far, the GSBI has mentored more than 150 enterprises operating in 50 countries, reaching 74 million people. Also, nearly 95 percent of GSBI Alumni are still working in their social ventures and more than 50 percent are scaling, meaning that revenue is growing faster than expenses.
We collaborate with a diverse group of partners including successful Silicon Valley executives, academic leaders, and the network of Jesuit universities. Our mentoring network helps participants scale their ventures to create jobs, sell their products and services, and solve problems internationally.
Social entrepreneurs who apply and win GSBI scholarships build capacity to effect systemic change through our proven combination of curriculum and individualized mentoring. We help participants create strategic business plans that they can confidently present to impact investors and other funders around the world.
