Bpeace is the nonprofit network of business volunteers who work with entrepreneurs in violence-affected communities to scale their businesses, create significant employment for all and expand the economic power of women. They operate like a pro bono consulting firm. Either by long-distance mentoring or by in-country visits, their volunteer experts share functional expertise in human resources, finance and marketing; and industry-specific technical advice for industries ranging from food processing to technology.
The Bpeace consulting toolbox also includes local staff with private-sector consulting experience, and Bpeace-arranged visits to U.S. Host Companies. Bpeace has created a successful mentor program that reaches out to entrepreneurs running small and growing businesses in areas of conflict. In addition they also run the Volunteer Excellence Recognition Awards (VERAs), which are awarded annually to those members who distinguish themselves by making significant contributions to Bpeace and their mission.
Social business organisations are eligible to apply.
They currently operate in Afghanistan, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
They offer business experts ready to volunteer their time and knowledge to advise the applicant.
Applications can be submitted all year round via the online form on their website.
