Social entrepreneurship can be lonely.
Let us accompany you along your journey.
We deliver world-class accelerator programs that connect global social enterprise leaders with executive mentors to develop more sustainable, scalable, market-based solutions for providing pathways out of poverty around the world.
World-class programs help you effect transformative change
Always free to the entrepreneur
All of our accelerator programs are offered at no charge to selected applicants.
From post-revenue startup to scale, we walk with you every step of the way.
Mentors do NOT helicopter in
Mentorship is tailored to your enterprise. Two executive mentors accompany you as trusted advisors, guiding you through the curriculum and sharing expertise through weekly calls for the duration of the program.
Complete access to our online community
Engage with peers and Miller Center staff for advice and fellowship. Benefit from program management and regular communications to support you and keep you on track. Utilize templates, tools, and resources tailored to your business needs.
Pioneering social enterprise capacity development
All of our programs are built on our industry-leading Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI®) methodology. The lessons we have learned from working with over 1,200 social enterprises since 2003 are broadly applicable across sectors and geographies. Our stage-specific programs for post-revenue startup and early growth stage social enterprises, along with our network of partners, collectively serve hundreds of impact organizations annually.
Our methodology revolves around three dynamic interactive aspects:
Social enterprise selection
We work with social entrepreneurs running non-profit, for-profit, and hybrid businesses who are committed to improving the lives of people living in poverty through a market-based approach and meet our qualifications.
We know every entrepreneur’s journey is unique. Our integrated and systematic approach enables program participants and their mentors to customize, supplement, and adjust the program to the enterprise’s needs.
We connect our social enterprise leaders with executive-level mentors who have decades of experience running companies, delivering products and services to market, building teams, and managing risk.
