It’s already 2020 but there’s still a lot we have to celebrate about 2019 so allow us a quick look back! We met hundreds of very passionate entrepreneurs, partnered with organizations leading innovation and systemic change, revisited existing partnerships, expanded our team, launched new initiatives, and enjoyed every second of this incredible journey.
Your trust and support made this possible, so here’s a quick look at the impact we made together in 2019.
Here at Bridge, diversity is NOT a value we take for granted. The background and focus areas of our entrepreneurs and mentors has helped to create a rich community and reinforces our belief that entrepreneurial potential is everywhere. It’s been exciting to see that the flexible nature of our program enables many full-time workers to begin their startup journey without quitting their jobs.
However, there’s still a lot of opportunity in 2020 to further bridge the gap between rural and urban entrepreneurs and expand to other under-served countries.

We cannot achieve our vision of democratizing access to entrepreneurship support alone. Here are a few of the corporate bodies and international organizations we’ve partnered with to develop innovation programs.
We are grateful for our various partners who offer our alumni and incubating entrepreneurs additional resources to grow their businesses.
Since June 2018, we’ve been working on creating an entirely new platform from zero and it became a reality in 2019. We completely rebuilt our program and pedagogy with enhanced features for entrepreneurs, mentors, and program admins.
Since 2019 was a year of growth, we welcomed 8 amazing new talents from 5 different countries into our team.
If we took a leap in 2019, watch out for us in 2020 as we begin our hike into new countries, pursue new partnerships, and launch new initiatives to make entrepreneurship support available to everyone, everywhere. Here are a few of the projects we will embark on in 2020.
