ACCOMPANIMENT IS AT THE CORE OF OUR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE SUPPORT.

Miller Center’s Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI®) methodology combines immersive executive mentorship with rigorous curriculum to support social entrepreneurs (SEs) at every stage of their organization’s journeys—from blueprint to scale. We focus on strengthening an enterprise’s impact and business model, and presenting its value proposition in a compelling manner.

SHARE EXPERTISE. CREATE IMPACT. JOIN US.

The decision to become a mentor is often born of the desire to make a real and lasting impact in the world. Miller Center mentors engage their passion for business to help social entrepreneurs build sustainable and scalable organizations by accompanying them through our GSBI Accelerator programs and often beyond. Our mentors find that giving their time and wisdom generates tremendous personal satisfaction.

The key differentiator of GSBI is executive-level mentoring in the form of weekly conference calls structured around practical business curriculum. Through this work, the SE/mentor team builds strong working relationships; understands the state of the enterprise concerning impact and business models; and refines the business plan, impact metrics, financials, and other materials that communicate this information during a final presentation at the end of the program.

Most mentors find the GSBI mentoring process to be personally fulfilling—returning year after year to participate. Many mentors are founders of successful startups, venture capitalists, or executives at Fortune 500 companies. All are chosen for their experience in startup enterprises and/or profit and loss (P&L) responsibility in larger organizations.
