Gain Global is a network of action oriented supporters, investors and partners, commited to empowering starters in their journey to initiating new enterprises.
The purpose of this network is to enhance the investment opportunities of its members, by providing forums for considering opportunities, by facilitating education for members, and by assisting in the formation, development, structuring and funding operation of early stage projects and companies. Especially, focus of the Network will be to support projects that use JCI Active Citizen Framework during their project planning and those who pass trough Global Youth Empowernment Fund process.
The core mission of GAIN Global is,
raising awareness in the field of entrepreneurship and creating an environment to facilitate transformation of business ideas into thriving companies through collaboration.
GAIN Global values are;
Young People consistently experience higher unemployment and less job stability than older people. They are nearly three times more likely to be unemployed than the rest of the population. Poverty and inequality could rise by even more than our projections if Young People are not motivated and engaged with current stakeholders of society.
Entrepreneurship is one key solution, where a Young People, creates value for everyone, by initiating a new project or entreprise. Start-up and expansion is one of the primary keys to economic development at the local level. In fact, many most successful companies were start-ups in their own right.
The goal of the GAIN is to fill the gap between “friends and family” and traditional VC financing for companies, and support success stories after their initial grant process. Funding and assistance from GAIN will allow a project and start-up to accomplish critical milestones that will make it attractive for a larger follow-on venture capital financing.
Potential target groups for the proposed Network is Young People targeted with in Global Youth Empowernment Fund (GYEF). The network will initially target to set up 20 National Networks in 200 Local Communities and 20.000 Members, with a commitment of investing to project/companies per network each year.
