MBA's without Borders:

MBAs Without Borders was formed as an international not-for-profit organization bringing innovative solutions to developing countries by matching experienced business volunteers with local businesses and NGOs to unleash a big secret…Business Can do Amazing Things!.  MBAs Without Borders partners with international and local businesses and not-for-profi ts working toward the better good of developing countries and we recruit MBAs who best support such organizations.  http://www.mbaswithoutborders.org






Investors without Borders: 

Investors Without Borders (IWB) will link the global investor community with opportunities to lend directly to Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries. Through its proprietary web-based peer-to-peer lending and credit assessment platform, IWB will help investors generate a financial return while engaging in social and economic development initiatives. Investors can finance loan requests for as little as $100 while connecting with SMEs anywhere in the world. SMEs gain access to affordable loans and expand their exposure and networks abroad.  IWB fills the void between microfinance and institutional finance.Our investments target growth-oriented SMEs with the least access to capital, yet the greatest potential to innovate, create jobs, and generate solid returns. IWB will launch in 2008 in Ghana, West Africa, with additional investment regions to follow. IWB is a self-funded start-up company, consisting of the Founder/managing director, advisory board, and a strong network of ancillary advisors, pro bono consultants, and volunteers. Additional networks, research, and strategic direction is provided through The George Washington University: www.investorswithoutborders.net
