Summary Business Plan Presentations
8:00 a.m.-6:15 p.m.
6:15 p.m.-7:45 p.m.
The Global Social Benefit Incubator (GSBITM) program at Santa Clara University enables proof of concept social ventures that serve the base of the pyramid to become sustainable at scale. It combines classroom instruction in finance, marketing creation, organizational development, and business planning with case studies, best practices and, most importantly, carefully matched Silicon Valley mentors. The invited entrepreneurs have demonstrated that their innovations can have a significant impact on alleviating poverty and empowering human development in the most adverse circumstances around the world.
Living and learning together, GSBI participants develop practical know-how and a true sense of community. At the August 26 summary business plan presentations, you will see how the unique GSBI learning environment contribute to the innovative adaptation of technology and models of social change, in combination with validated business plans, to accelerate the potential for social entrepreneurship to benefit all of humanity.
We know you will be inspired by the work of the 2010 Global Social Benefit Incubator class and the promise of their innovative business plans.
