How It Works

  • Entrepreneurs: We work with the over 200 partners in our network to search the globe for the world’s most promising entrepreneurs tackling an issue of importance to you. From hundreds of applicants, we pick the 12 best-of-the-best.
  • Intrapreneurs: (If desired), you select teams or individuals from within your company who have innovative ideas that you want to support, and who would benefit from world-class innovation training and the chance to work with leading entrepreneurs in action.
  • Curriculum: We customize the program to meet your needs and facilitate our tried-and-true acceleration curriculum, which has delivered dramatic, measurable results for 150+ startups to-date.
  • Mentors: We bring together a powerful community of world-class mentors, drawing from our network of 260+ leading executives, serial entrepreneurs, best-selling authors, a TIME Hero of the Planet, an entrepreneur who has raised over $1B, and a development expert whose work has brought over 20 million people out of poverty.
  • Convening: The program culminates in a high-profile convening of investors and other key stakeholders, in which the entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to the world’s best and brightest minds tackling the issue at hand.
  • Investment: Drawing from our global network of 540+ active investors, we bring together leading funders to provide the capital necessary to scale the most innovative ideas.

Beyond Sponsorship

This is not CSR as usual. We want partners who are eager to roll up their sleeves and help us drive real impact in the world.
