The Generalist Global Program

Propel your venture to the next level.

The Generalist Global Program welcomes entrepreneurs from Latin America, Africa, and South East Asia with ventures in all sectors. Past participants have ranged from artisanship, med-tech to cosmetics.

We follow a highly selective application process on a rolling application basis. Teams consist of one entrepreneur paired up with two university students. This year’s cohort will consist of 50 companies and 100 students.

Following an initial screening process, selected students are interviewed by two members of our management team. Accepted applicants are matched with entrepreneurs based on corresponding demands and skills.

The program is an online remote collaboration opportunity that is unpaid. Students interested in the program must submit their application and resume.

The entrepreneur’s venture needs to be in line with our social impact policy based on the UNDP’s Economic, Social and Governance (ESG) factors. We conduct in-house due diligence to assess the entrepreneur’s venture’s compliance through a thorough application process requiring official documentation, referrals, interviews, and performance data.


Accepted entrepreneurs will:

  • Collaborate with top-tier students to innovate venture
  • Gain visibility and traction in new markets
  • Exposure to potential investors
  • Entrepreneurs must have worked on their venture for a minimum of 1 year and possess a working knowledge of English, French or Spanish.
