Program description

Our incubation program helps entrepreneurs to structure and validate their business idea or project with the aim of creating sustainable businesses that generate an impact on their environment and promote the social and economic development of their country or community.

One of the great causes of why entrepreneurs fail or stop pursuing their business ideas is due to a lack of support and guidance: that’s where you come in. We are looking for mentors to accompany these entrepreneurs on the journey and through the fundamentals of creating a business.

Our incubation program offers updated content with the latest trends in entrepreneurship and an active learning pedagogy so that you, as a guide, always know what comes next and how to best support your entrepreneur. During the program, the teams will work on their value proposition, competitor map, price definition, financial projections, impact plan and much more. However, they need you by their side to discuss ideas, review progress and, above all, have someone who constantly supports them.

  • 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.
