Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship & Chevron Launch

Three-Year, $900,000 Climate Resilience Initiative

Advancing climate resilience solutions through social entrepreneurship is the primary goal of a three-year initiative announced by Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship and Chevron. The project aims to further climate-smart agriculture, safe water, and reliable low-carbon energy to vulnerable communities in Asia Pacific through customized support to high potential social enterprises.

The project is launched in conjunction with the release of a Miller Center paper entitled, Amplifying Impact: How Accelerating Social Entrepreneurship Boosts Climate Resilience. The paper makes the case that social entrepreneurship can help prevent more people being pushed into poverty by climate-fueled events such as droughts, floods, and increasingly frequent and strong storms.

Some of the funding will be devoted to “Breaking the Bias” research research and training methodologies aimed at helping support women and people of color in overcoming entrenched biases in the startup ecosystem.
