Our data matters.

 

 

ENTREPRENEUR EVALUATION PROCESS

We care so deeply about the success and impact of our work that we choose to live and work alongside of our entrepreneurs. All but one of our Western staff are located in Asia, working daily alongside our entrepreneurs to ensure that their ventures go through successful incubation and launch stages.

We hold weekly meetings in-person and conduct daily phone calls, training our partner entrepreneurs with open, consistent communication. We take them through a rigorous process of evaluation and have developed curricula around training rural Asia entrepreneurs on venture building.

Our monthly recap meetings consist of strict guidelines to ensure successful progress, such as reviewing mission and vision, evaluating KPIs and P&Ls, discussing forecasts and budget targets, outlining market strategy, etc.

COMMUNITY EVALUATION PROCESS

To ensure their businesses are having an impact on their employees and fulfilling our mission to help communities thrive, our partner entrepreneurs are trained to regularly conduct community impact surveys.

These surveys annually measure each employee's progress toward goals across six dimensions of holistic health: physical, intellectual, occupational, emotional, relational, and spiritual.

We also help our partner entrepreneurs develop KPIs to measure their employees' access to basic needs such as nutrition, sanitation, healthcare, education for adults and children, adequate housing, and transportation. We help them develop solutions to their community's greatest needs based on these employee survey results.
