Our mission is to empower aspiring entrepreneurs in the developing world with innovative, scalable business ideas by providing them with a rigorous, Christ-centered business education, world-class consulting and mentoring services and access to seed capital.
Sinapis accomplishes its mission through two inter-related programs:
- The Sinapis Entrepreneurship Training Program is an intensive 4-month business training program similar to a mini-MBA but customized for earlier stage ventures. Participants in this program spend approximately 20 hours per week completing online coursework, attending in-person class sessions, and doing practical “field work” assignments that allow immediate implementation of lessons learned. Upon completion of the training program, the entrepreneurs are eligible to compete in the Sinapis Business Plan Competition, in which the top 10 finalists compete for seed capital at a live pitch event.
- The finalists in the business plan competition are then invited to join our Fast Track Fellows Program, which is a 6-month accelerator program that provides the entrepreneurs access to high quality generalist consultants, professional advisors, successful entrepreneur mentors, advanced trainings, and investor match-making.
