Bridge for Billions
Bridge for Billions is a collaborative online platform to evaluate and develop entrepreneurial talent. Our proprietary technology connects corporate volunteers and investors with entrepreneurs globally. By recreating the startup journey through 8 Business Creation Tools, we provide a holistic mentoring solution for entrepreneurs to build their businesses, offer corporations a unique employee engagement tool to further enhance their employees skills, and enable investors and organizations to source and invest in projects.
We want to scale to democratize entrepreneurship globally and leverage the skills of corporate volunteers to reach meaningful impact. Therefore, for us scaling is not a choice, but the means of survival.
