" I am fortunate enough to receive a great education but simply leaving my knowledge in the classroom would be a waste of an opportunity. I am excited to collaborate with passionate, like-minded students to take my potential for a local sustainable impact to the global level. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Global Business Brigades at Northeastern
Global Business Brigades is a nonprofit student-led organization for economic development, using business and financial consulting to empower better lives. Working alongside staff and entrepreneurs, students with skill in financial strategy will have the opportunity to lead financial literacy workshops and support micro-enterprise growth in rural, under-resourced areas of countries. This structure will inspire and allow the Northeastern chapter of GBB to take action for economic equity and consult small businesses to make a difference. Due to the given circumstances, some goals for GBB this semester are successfully building an executive board of passionate students, getting 20 members to join the organization, and remotely consulting at least seven non-profit organizations or social enterprises in the United States. They will continue to build out this chapter of GBB, raising capital, and hopefully getting the chance to employ this model of sustainability in developing areas when travel restrictions are lifted.
