About Business Brigades
Global Business Brigades (GBB) provides business consulting and strategic investment to support under resourced microenterprises in developing countries. Our current focus is in remote and rural communities in Panama where we partner with other local development organizations to assess, implement and monitor sustainable development projects in 15 partner communities. The business brigade volunteers serve as a catalyst to the development projects, providing consulting methodologies, financial workshops and “capital investment,” a monetary donation to the project to improve profitability or social impact. Between brigades our in-country team maintains relationships with the partner organizations and communities to provide follow-up and measure outcomes.
