Centro is honored to have been selected by the prestigious Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI) at the Miller Center in Santa Clara University to participate of their 2016 Online Program for social enterprises. We are even more excited to say Centro was the only US-based organization and non-profit chosen among the more than 300 applicants world-wide this year!
Throughout the 6-month program, former entrepreneurs and seasoned advisors Michael Wray and Doug Wheeler will help Centro:
- Scale its model and services nationally
- Secure the tools and investment for a sustainable growth trajectory
- Select the best social indicators to mesure our impact in the world
Altogether, our goal is to persevere in our mission to foster socio-economic change by providing rising yet underserved entrepreneurs with the best and most appropriate tools available to launch or grow their small businesses and create jobs in their communities.
We are also humbled to share this program with a truly outstanding group of social entrepreneurs who are making huge strides to create more social equity in the world. View who they are and what they are doing here. We can't wait to connect with them and explore collaborations after this organizational growth intensive!
