Coach mentoring African business leader

Seed Coaches

Volunteer for a year. Make an impact for a lifetime.

On the Ground

Seed is all about action and results. To that end, a small group of high-potential leaders who have completed the Seed Transformation Program are selected to receive six months of high-touch business coaching. As a Seed coach, you’ll engage directly with these leaders and their companies, on the ground, in their communities. Because we believe that’s the only way real change happens.

Hands-On

Seed coaches work side by side with entrepreneurs to help them implement their companies’ transformation plans: detailed action plans for transforming companies into industry leaders and job creators. All aspects of management — leadership, product design, finance, marketing, supply chain, and more — factor into these plans.

A Yearlong Commitment

Helping companies achieve transformation takes hard work and a sustained commitment. Coach responsibilities include working intensely with three to five companies during each of the two six-month stints. Travel is an integral part of the Seed coach position as well. Expect to spend 25% to 50% of your time visiting company sites and/or offices.
