Theory of Change
Our approach brings together students, professionals and social entrepreneurs to a clear mission.
Collaborate with early-stage social entrepreneurs in the developing world to scale business ventures and empower local communities.
We bring together a global network of high calibre students, young professionals and social entrepreneurs passionate about bringing positive social change.
Students and professionals run our Incubation Programme, in which social entrepreneurs receive pro bono support on business, financial, legal and technical issues.
We deliver market research, growth strategies, product designs, legal briefings, financial models, and more. Every team member learns from the process.
Entrepreneurs get to rely on our research and advice to navigate their business challenges, and hopefully scale up their operations.
Entrepreneurs develop a lasting impact in their communities through their business, and the BfE team members continue to shine in their career.
