Mission

Generation Enterprise is run by a group of visionary, off-kilter, and always optimistic young men and women from across the globe. Our mission is to unlock the vast potential of the less fortunate 80 million youth worldwide who are unemployed, as well as the 152 million who are trapped in low-paying, insecure jobs in the informal sector. These youth are currently vulnerable to exploitation and susceptible to criminal activities-instead, we aim to empower them to become agents of economic development in slums. We use Silicon Valley startup methods to prototype and test ideas that serve or source from the "Bottom of the Pyramid", a $5 trillion + annual market that is largely underserved by business. We build out profitable businesses that create a pathway to employment and ownership. Specifically, our enterprises provide a development track from trainee to employee to technician to manager to worker-owner. This model builds on historic practices of community ownership, but is applied for modern market requirements. We believe in local agency. We believe in human centered design. We believe in financially sustainable solutions to the greatest social and economic challenges. And most of all, we believe in the potential of each person to make a positive impact in their community.

Programs

Generation Enterprise builds businesses that create a pathway to employment and ownership for urban youth. Over the past 3 years, we have run a half dozen entrepreneurship programs and are now scaling several businesses with potential to transform individuals and their communities. Our vision is based on generating local talent and local ownership.
