Empower entrepreneurs as a BfE mentor

When you apply, you may declare your interest in — and be accepted to — one, two or all three of these mentorship opportunities shown above.

Volunteer at BfE Technology

BfE has a separate unit focused on developing software and algorithms to help scale our impact. If you have experience in software development, cloud infrastructure or algorithm design, we would welcome you to join us as a volunteer on BfE Tech instead. This is different from the mentorship roles described above and operate at an arms-length to our Incubation Programme.

How to join BfE?

Filling out the application is designed to take no more than 10 minutes.

Applications are reviewed by our global management team on a year-round basis. Our team will email you when your application has been approved. To be cognizant of working schedules, we don’t currently conduct interviews. However, we encourage you to email if you have any questions and someone from our team will be in touch with you.

As a BfE mentor, you will have the ability to:

  • Empower social entrepreneurs to solve business challenges and scale their venture
  • Generate locally-driven impact for the beneficiaries our clients serve
  • Develop your communication and coaching skills
  • Learn about — and develop knowledge in — new business sectors in emerging economies
  • Provide guidance and advice to high-achieving students on their career development journey
  • Connect with like-minded professionals through our Members Portal platform (launching soon)
