G-Lab received support from JP Morgan Chase Foundation to help 25 teams comprising of more than 100 aspiring social entrepreneurs develop and scale their social enterprises. Our process was very hands- on, innovative, and collaborative (cross-sector), where we conducted in-depth needs assessment with all the teams. The program was designed to include elements of experts’ office hours, monthly challenges, and optional workshops where teams acquired practical tools to help improve their enterprises. We also had a monitoring and evaluation system in place to help track and match teams with necessary resources to scale and, at the end, invited investors to invest in their enterprises.
Example social enterprises worked with include: Learn Education, Local Alike, Socialgiver, Mivana coffee, and Folkrice.
