The Seed Transformation Program is specifically designed for leaders of established businesses — not early-stage entrepreneurs. We’re looking for CEOs or founders of companies and market-driven social enterprises —in businesses ranging from agriculture to IT — who want to capitalize on what they’ve already created … and take it to the next level.

- CEOs or founders of companies or market-driven social enterprises who want to grow and scale their businesses, and positively impact their communities.

- Attend four one-week intensive class sessions, full time and in person, over the course of eight months.
- Prepare for and participate in four full-day facilitated workshops at your company with your management team to share and apply your learnings and to develop a companywide transformation plan that will grow and scale your company.
