Be! an Entrepreneur: Investing in Young Entrepreneurs

Commitment by

Going to School

In 2008, Going to School (GTS), in partnership with the Nike Foundation, committed to create the Be! Fund, an investment fund for young, low-income entrepreneurs in India to create businesses that solve the social, economic, and environmental problems they face in their lives. GTS plans to invest 50 percent of this fund in women entrepreneurs, specifically, and hopes that the lessons learned from these investments will prove invaluable for government agencies, organizations, investors, and the millions of young entrepreneurs across India interested in taking these types of projects to scale.
