Schooling entrepreneurs at street level

Boulder, Colo., based Bead for Life is designed to create sustainable opportunities for women to lift their families out of extreme poverty by connecting people worldwide in a circle of exchange that enriches everyone. Started in Uganda, where the founders met a woman making rolled paper bead jewelry that they knew they could find her a market for, Bead for Life is engaging an Anderson Applied Management Research team to expand its new Street Business School — a training program for women at the bottom of the economic pyramid that builds their entrepreneurial capacity and helps them start sustainable business ventures.

The AMR team will help Bead for Life reach one million women worldwide through SBS by 2027. Specifically, the Anderson students will research the market and recommend a recruiting strategy, as well as identify the Sub-Saharan countries and locations in greatest need of the SBS model. They will determine where significant gaps exist in the market for a program like SBS and calculate how many potential SBS implementers exist and where they are. The expectation is that they will then recommend a comprehensive pipeline development and recruitment strategy to be used for global expansion and tested during the pilot phase.
