OUR VISION To create a culture of prosperity.
OUR MISSION To provide opportunities globally to enterprising people by enabling them to build businesses that have sustainable positive impact on their communities, environments and the world.
WHAT WE DO Our Frontier Markets Scouts (FMS) program is impact driven and sustainability focused, and widely recognized by field professionals as one of the most innovative and high impact initiatives in the social entrepreneurship sector.
“Frontier Market Scouts discover local entrepreneurs, help entrepreneurs discover investors, and help investors discover entrepreneurs in places that need both the most. In the process the Scouts discover themselves, their passion, their talent, their fortitude and adaptability and their career and life paths.” - Dr. Yuwei Shi

With a rapidly expanding network of alumni and partners across the globe who are committed to driving positive social impact, we ensure that we are doing our part to support and inspire what we like to call - Generation Enterprise.
