Each year, we select 25 entrepreneurs from all corners of the world, including many great entrepreneurs from Africa, to live with us in Boulder, Colorado, USA for 6 weeks. During that time, we invite 50 mentors, ranging from the CTO of HP, to the co-founder of Google.org, to an entrepreneur who's enabled over 19 million farmers to move out of poverty. These entrepreneurs also form close relationships with portfolio managers from over 20 impact investment funds like Acumen Fund, Good Capital, LGT Venture Philanthropies and more; obtain legal advice, design consulting, and fundraising training; and pitch at least one hundred potential funders. They do it all while living under the same roof in Boulder, Colorado for 6 weeks with 24 peers dedicated to defining progress in our time!
