Vision/Goals


GBDC Entrepreneurship Institute (GBDCEI), a nonprofit corporation has a vision of having a tangible impact on unemployment of youth, homeless and disenfranchised citizens of Florida. GBDCEI recognizes that traditional employment scenarios are not always a good fit for everyone and for that reason emphasis is placed on reduction of employment through entrepreneurship education, capacity building of small and medium enterprise (SMEs) and professional development of young and future entrepreneurs.

Mission


Our Mission is the development of social entrepreneurs through training, business coaching and technical assistance. Emphasis is placed on young entrepreneurs; to aid in the reduction of school dropout rates and the increase in employability skills and job creation.

Our History


 

GBDCEI was formally structured as a 501c3 in August of 2014 and the work began many years prior. For more than a decade the GBDC team has been delivering technical assistance directly to entrepreneurs and as consultants to organizations such as The SBA Resource Provider, Florida Women’s Business Center, The Urban League, The United Way, The Center for Opportunity, The City of Boynton Beach and many others. We have worked individually and as part of several strategic alliances with organizations such as The Boynton Beach CDC, The Milagro Center and POPS Fort Lauderdale and Belle Glade.

Youth Community outreach programs have made a great impact on the youth and young adults of South Florida. The Kid-Preneur Leadership Academy, The Business Side of Art (Youth Version), The Summer Youth Entrepreneurship Training & Business Plan Competition have served many teens and young adults statewide.
