Talent is everywhere, opportunities… are not

Ensure your initiatives are committed to Diversity Equity and Inclusion and unlock growth opportunities for entrepreneurs from all walks of life.

Our ecosystem lacks diversity

The reality is that nowadays senior entrepreneurs and founders from rural areas have big trouble accessing capital, only 3% of global capital went to all female teams and only 38 black entrepreneurs received VC funding over the last decade in the UK. 

There are many more statistics like this when we review access to training, mentoring, tools and any other kind of resource. Entrepreneurs have a tendency to create solutions to the problems that they feel close to. Hence if only one type of entrepreneur is getting the support and resources, only one type of innovation will reach the market. Those that benefit a few. 

By opening the entrepreneurship ecosystem to entrepreneurs from all types of backgrounds we will ensure that innovation and opportunities are no longer a privilege. 

Implementing diversity and inclusion in startups

Create a program to tackle any type of discrimination through innovation and provide access to entrepreneurs regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age or religious commitment.
Tailor the program to provide the resources and support needed to the specific group of entrepreneurs. Ensure they have all they need to build strong and resilient businesses.
Track the entrepreneurs during and 2 years after the program to ensure that they generate growth and employment opportunities for themselves and their communities.
"I went online and I looked through the Bridge for Billions website and I just saw people from all over the world: various cultures and different generations. It is so awesome and mind-blowing to know that programs like this exist for everyone. Without these programs, a lot of people in my position wouldn’t have access to other resources and would have to start from scratch. These programs are very important, very well-structured and very wanted and needed by our communities."

Create your own experience

Let’s design it together!


Needs Assessment

Count on our expertise running entrepreneurship programs in 147 countries and across all sectors to understand how to reach your organization’s objectives. Let’s define the type of entrepreneur you want to support based on your organization's purpose, their needs and the ideal mentor for this type of founder.


Program Kickoff

After we align on the pillars of your entrepreneurship program, your assigned Program Manager is ready to kick-off. In collaboration with Marketing we will develop communication materials to find the entrepreneurs and mentors for your program. Once the selection process is over we’ll build the perfect teams between mentors and entrepreneurs. You can also include your employees as mentors! 


Implementation Support

We manage all aspects of the program implementation with you, from launch and scouting of participants to facilitation, incubation support and impact reporting. Our incubation platform comes equipped with the content, methodology and technology to keep the program flexible to every entrepreneur’s reality. Feel free to add specific sessions or resources in order to provide a tailor-made experience to your participants.


Closing and Evaluation

After entrepreneurs have validated and built strong businesses and meaningful relationships through their weekly one-to-one sessions and training with their mentors, we can host a demo day to celebrate the achievements and reflect on the experience with all your stakeholders. You’ll also get a complete report with the key results and learnings from the program.
