Community development methods are stuck in the 20th century.

Fundraising and a donor mindset is becoming increasingly irrelevant and unsustainable in the shifting global environment. Moreover, these traditional methods of development are met with suspicion and resistance in the most unreached and neediest parts of the world.

Entrepreneurial World Changers need more authentic, reliable and sustainable means to bring the Hope of real transformation that is possible to the places that haven’t heard about the abundant riches available to them in their own community.

The Entrepreneurship Seed Fund Serves To:



Help to create viable, Profitable & Scalable Businesses and Non-Profits


Help to connect local entrepreneurs with ecosystems for support


Collaborate across Christian ministry networks & organizations


Reproducing life-giving organizations worldwide, filled with people of vision and hope.


To train, equip, and connect entrepreneurs locally and globally to create new jobs and opportunities in under-resourced communities around the world.


Cultivating and supporting local and global, collaborative communities of transformational entrepreneurs.

Years in ministry

The Entrepreneurship Seed Fund provides Christian entrepreneurs with funding and access to training, resources and community through the support of key partners.


ESF provides scholarships for emerging entrepreneurs to be trained, enabling them to start, grow, and scale businesses, ministries, and NGOs.


ESF sponsors local events, conferences, and regional training workshops for entrepreneurs.


ESF supports the launch of local entrepreneurship ecosystems providing a flow of talent, information and resources for success.


ESF sustains a worldwide network to accelerate entrepreneurship and job creation globally.

It’s easy to find good ministry training, but hard to find good business training. The support I received from ESF allowed for me to get high-quality, practical, and relevant training for starting a business venture that actually has the opportunity to grow and give back to the local community.
