What is Bridge for Billions?
We are a social startup that was born between New York and Madrid (recognized as Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe and Ashoka Fellow) whose mission is to democratize access to entrepreneurial support worldwide. Why? Because we dream of a world in which each person, anywhere, can access opportunities to unleash their entrepreneurial potential and generate sustainable solutions for themselves and for others.
We work hand in hand with entrepreneurs, companies, foundations, universities, and governments around the world to co-create innovation programs that are tailored to their needs. We have already developed more than 110 digital programs with public and private organizations, and we have supported more than 1,500 entrepreneurs in 70 countries.
We are a team of leaders who dare to be vulnerable. No goal is impossible for us! Our CEO and founder,Pablo Santaeufemia, leads our work from Madrid, where most of the team is based. Here in Latin America, we have people in different countries generating and executing all our programs.Sara Lee is the Head of the region, andAndrea Carron, is our leader in Central America.
- The Leap: our own incubation program designed to help you challenge and structure all the ideas that are in your head while you validate your value proposition, define your business model, and put its viability to the test
- Bridge for Billions Fellowship: an exclusive opportunity for those social entrepreneurs who have gone through one of our programs. Thanks to this fellowship they will be able to access 50,000 USD of seed grant.
- Innovation programs: thanks to which we help corporations, foundations, governments, universities, or cooperatives to develop and enhance their innovation and entrepreneurship programs. Work with us, quality and quantity are possible!
There are many people who fail to become entrepreneurs simply because they do not have access to the right education and tools. At Bridge for Billions we want to end this reality, as our colleague Adolfo tells us inthis article.
