Empowering equality through entrepreneurship in the digital world

Digital businesses are transforming lives in the Philippines by creating job opportunities, driving economic development, and giving communities the opportunity to create better living conditions for themselves. That’s why we created the Bridge for Billions Incubation Program for Filipino Entrepreneurs, in partnership with Payoneer.

Guided by our values, the purpose of this program is to empower Filipino digital businesses to make a positive impact for themselves and their people; by providing educational resources, infrastructure and connecting them with mentors.

And that mentor could be you!

As a volunteer mentor, you could play a crucial role in their development journey. You can be someone’s guiding light by sharing your business knowledge and expertise, offering your emotional support, and offering feedback on their progress.

We’ll take care of the methodology, and you’ll bring the human touch.

Announcement of selected mentors

Attend the onboarding session

End of January

If selected, you will be invited to an onboarding welcome call to the program where you will learn the role of the mentor, how to choose a project, use the incubation platform, its methodology and much more!


Choose the project you want to mentor


Take part in our matching process! You will have the opportunity to meet online with different projects. Once you have met several of them, both you and the entrepreneurs will submit your rankings in order to let us know who you want to work with. Based on the rankings, we will make the best mentor-mentee pairs.


The program starts!

March to June

  • You will work weekly with your mentee in one-on-one mentoring sessions to review their work on the 8 business modules on the platform.
  • You will guide them while they cover the most important parts of their business (from refining the value proposition to generating a clear growth plan).
  • You will meet the other mentors in our monthly sessions, so you can share learnings, challenges, and network.

The platform at a glance

Entrepreneurship is a chaotic process by nature. Therefore, the Bridge for Billions methodology is based on a practical and structured learning approach. The incubation program is based on the development of a business plan from scratch while the entrepreneur surrounds himself with a supportive community: mentors like you, other entrepreneurs and our incubation team. The 8 online business tools allow entrepreneurs to experiment, investigate and document their ideas step by step so that at the end of the program they can download their own business plan in PDF and above all, have the confidence that they are building a viable business.
