Social Enterprise

Social entrepreneurs are key to solving social and environmental problems head-on, and are the link between the Institute and the under- resourced communities. Social entrepreneurs build resilience in the communities they work in by creating economic opportunities for under resourced communities while tackling societal challenges with innovative technologies-solutions in areas of sustainable food systems, resilient infrastructure, human capital development and financial inclusion.

Hunt Institute Social Entrepreneurs also have access to our experts


Social Entrepreneur Testimony

"The Hunt Institute's support has been critical to Break Bread Break Borders' success. They were willing to engage with us at an early stage. Beyond their toolbox, we benefited from the involvement of many experts, student interns and exposure. Theirs is not simply a finite program but a permanent hub for empowerment and a community for impact. Initially we were simply focused on learning and creating a solid business plan. Now we are sharing our experiences, mentoring others and forging partnerships, including for replicating our model in other parts of the world. You don't graduate but evolve in this approach and in the process our collective impact is being scaled exponentially."
