When you share your skills through Bpeace, you create a Ripple Effect in a vibrant ecosystem
You Enrich Your Life
Whether you travel to one of our regions or advise our entrepreneurs long-distance, you gain the experience of working with new markets and cultures. Bpeace members enjoy learning how small and growing businesses apply innovation despite a lack of access to role models, best practices and experienced consulting.
Your Skills Spark Growth
We carefully vet the local businesses we advise, and select the ones with the most potential to grow and create jobs for others. We call them Fast Runners because they appreciate that consulting from seasoned experts can accelerate growth. Fast Runners who have been in the Bpeace program for more than a year average double-digit job and revenue growth.
You Connect to Others
Join Bpeace, and join a virtual global community of like-minded volunteer business professionals from across the U.S. and 15+ other countries. Hailing from Estee Lauder, Amazon, PwC, Morgan Stanley and ReMax, as well as boutique and family-owned businesses, members also include independent consultants, retirees and other professionals who are passionate about creating a better world.
"The fact that I can actually use my business skills to help positively impact the world is inspiring. I recently visited Guatemala to help consult with 20 small businesses on their branding issues. It was an enriching experience and I feel as if I got much more than I gave."

"My experiences with Bpeace have been only positive. Wonderful people all over the world working together to help make areas of conflict better places for the people that live there. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization."

"I volunteer over Skype with businesses in Afghanistan. The work is intellectually stimulating. Resources and tools that are readily available here in the U.S. are not elsewhere, so we need to be creative. It's all very fulfilling. Try it and you will never want to do anything else!"

We ask our member/volunteers to contribute to our mission with a monthly donation. These membership donations contribute about 6% of our annual operating budget. In some cases, we offer complimentary memberships to experts with particular technical skills in high demand by our Fast Runner entrepreneurs. Traveling Mentors may be eligible for financial subsidies to partially offset travel costs.
