Manifesto

We believe that entrepreneurship is the most effective tool for solving some of the biggest issues we face; both globally and locally. Solving these issues  would not be possible without the millions of brave entrepreneurs that exist throughout the world. That’s why we decided to create Bridge for Billions. To guide and impulse those who want to change and improve the world.  

Access to innovation has often become a luxury, which is why our main motivation is to unlock opportunity for those who wish to generate a change.

Believing that everything has already been invented doesn’t fly with us. There are billions of possible consumers with needs to be met, and others that can be solved in a better way. We like to dream with a world full of opportunities; a world without limits.

We’re completely allergic to conformism. We’re the push that you need when you want to start, but don’t know how. We’re the spark that you feel when you wake up in the middle of the night with an idea that can change the world. We firmly believe in the potential of each person who decides to take that leap and chase their dreams.

We’re not going to lie; it’s going to be hard. Everything that’s important usually is. The views won’t always be the best, and the path will sometimes be an uphill climb.

But if you can overcome these barriers and get to the top of the mountain; the views will be more than worth it. We’re going to build those bridges that you need to take the next steps; we’re going to help you start off on the right foot. Without barriers, and without excuses.

You’re going to make it… and we’ll be there to see it.

Our Beliefs

Innovation can Happen Anywhere

We are committed to the idea that innovation and entrepreneurship should have no borders. We harness the power of technology to ensure that location doesn't play a role in limiting the ability of an entrepreneur to receive mentorship, support, or visibility.

Motivation + Resources = Successful Entrepreneurs

We strive to make entrepreneurship accessible to all who are motivated and passionate about business. Those who are motivated should not fail because of a lack of opportunity or access to a traditional business program.

Collaborative & Active Learning are Most Effective

We are passionate about the exchanging of ideas. We believe that this exchange is how learning is made more effective. We also believe that the best way to learn is through action. By putting into practice what you’ve learned, you better understand the ideas and how they play out in your business.

Good Mentorship Unlocks Potential

Mentorship provides a fresh look on an idea. They give an unbiased and external point of view to ensure that you’re on the right path. We believe that it is this mentorship that helps develop strong businesses with the potential to succeed.
