Miller Center is doubling down on our efforts to accelerate social entrepreneurship to end global poverty for the next generation. Our new Social Enterprise Advisory Council is a key part of our strategy — helping to inform our decisions and bring about our most ambitious outcomes. The eight amazing entrepreneurs on our council are all partners and alumni of our accelerator programs. They hail from Cameroon, India, Kenya, Mexico, Uganda, and the US, with their impact also extending to Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, and Tanzania.
Each enterprise is working in the areas of women’s economic empowerment or climate resilience (often both), with businesses focused on sustainable farming, women’s health, water and sanitation, food security and nutrition, empowering artisans, and energy access. All of them are having tremendous impact in improving lives and lifting people out of poverty.
