2021 CaterpillHERs and Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship Program for Women Led Social Enterprises in Pakistan

Deadline: November 30, 2020.

With the partnership between CaterpillHERs and Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship, we are bringing GSBI® to Pakistan. GSBI will provide women-led SGBs in Pakistan business curriculum, business acumen, networks, and mentors they need to gain agency to build “investment-readiness”. We are seeking 15 women-led SGBs from Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Hyderabad.


  1. Businesses should be focused on bringing a positive change in society with direct or indirect impact on global poverty or any other SDG.
  2. Founders must be engaged in the operations full-time and must be registered as a for-profit, non-profit or a hybrid organization.
  3. Small and Growing Businesses (SGBs) are defined as businesses with five to 250 employees that have significant potential to scale.
  4. The program requires passion and commitment by the founders and that’s the only thing we seek and evaluate our participants on.


  1. The program is totally free of cost with no equity or liability to any of the selected entrepreneurs. The only payment required is your full commitment to finish the program
  2. Their mentors act as your advisors. Each enterprise will be assigned two mentors – one providing Silicon Valley/global insights and one providing local context to give each enterprise high-touch and individual-level attention and resources.
  3. They understand that you wear multiple hats being an Entrepreneur. The program is equipped with soft skills training, office hours, and demo pitching sessions to keep your confidence amped up.
  4. The methodology focuses on the “Justifiable Ask.” This focus effectively asks: “If I were an investor and you came to me with that “ask,” here are the questions I would ask.”
