Innovation needs to focus on the most pressing issues of our time

Boost purpose-driven innovation and support the development of solutions to the problems that matter.

Our ecosystem lacks opportunities

The ugly truth of the entrepreneurship ecosystem is that it has a preconceived idea of what success is and looks like when it comes to innovation. That’s why many organizations only support low risk entrepreneurs working in trendy sectors. 

As decision makers we need to shift the mindset of our organizations and start tackling the issues that are most pressing for the common good and not only those that are a hot topic. To fight back some of the most important problems of today’s world we need to support diverse entrepreneurs developing all kinds of purpose-driven solutions.

An entrepreneurship program to advance change

Create a program to tackle the challenges of your sector or in the cause your organization is already working on.
Work side by side with the most agile mindsets of the ecosystem and get a front row seat to innovation in your sector.
Tailor the program to provide the resources and support needed to the specific group of entrepreneurs. Ensure they have all they need to build innovative and resilient solutions.
“To be able to design a program like Future Cities with Bridge for Billions as a strategic partner has allowed us to learn about entrepreneurs with innovative solutions who are already working towards building sustainable and responsible cities. We were able to create our own innovation network with whom to continue to collaborate.”
Carlos Valdés
CSR Director at Vía Célere
