Mission

Our Mission

Seed is a Stanford GSB-led initiative that’s working to end the cycle of global poverty.

We believe that business is one of the most powerful engines of change to move developing and emerging economies to greater prosperity. To maximize our impact, we’re working on multiple fronts and across multiple time horizons. Seed is training business leaders in developing economies, inspiring Stanford students to become globally engaged leaders, and supporting critical research that can lead to breakthrough solutions.
