Corporate Partners Embrace Social Entrepreneurship 

To Address Poverty and Care of the Planet

To help social entrepreneurs scale their impact globally, we start by looking to the most successful enterprises on the planet. 

Miller Center is engaging corporate leaders like eBay, Seagate, and GE in promising and groundbreaking ways. Our partners provide financial resources, personnel, facilities, and their tested business insights. Miller Center provides our field-proven GSBI® entrepreneurship curriculum, mentoring methodology, and access to an extensive network of enabled social entrepreneurs. 
Together, we help these social entrepreneurs advance their work and create lasting positive impact in their local communities.

We also provide employee engagement and leadership development opportunities for our partners. Here is some of the great work we are accomplishing together:
  1. eBay Foundation - Together we strengthened the social enterprise ecosystem by leveraging our GSBI Network and hosting GSBI Boost workshops in 7 cities around the globe.
  2. Seagate - We offered a customized GSBI Boost in Thailand that employed Seagate's in-country business leaders to mentor local social entrepreneurs.
  3. GE: healthymagination - We're partnering to provide a program to train and mentor social entrepreneurs working on maternal and child health innovations in sub-Saharan Africa. This program supports GE’s long track record in developing innovations for emerging markets while increasing positive health outcomes. We're accepting applications now
Our audacious goal to impact the lives of 1 billion people by 2020 is not possible on our own.

We invite you to roll up your sleeves and join us!
