About Street Business School 

Street Business School helps women living in poverty to gain knowledge and confidence, start small businesses, double their incomes and lift their families out of poverty. We have engaged in this work since 2008 by delivering an award-winning entrepreneurship training curriculum directly to women. In 2016, we started scaling through a social franchise model where we train other NGOs to deliver SBS our program in their local communities, allowing them to amplify their own impact.  

SBS currently has more than 400 certified Lead Coaches from 165+ partner NGOs working in 26 countries. We focus on impact and creating measurable change:  

  • SBS graduates have gone from living on $1.35 a day on average, to $4.19 a day two years later 
  • 89% of SBS graduates have at least one business two years after they graduate 

SBS is a non-profit social franchise with more than 35 global team members. SBS has been recognized as the Best Non-Profit, named by 14 Nobel Peace Laureates, has been awarded the System Innovator Award from Segal Family Foundation, has been selected as a Fellow at The Miller Center, was a finalist for the Kirby Prize, and has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, Barron’s, the New York Times and others.
