G-Accelerator at GBSB

GBSB Global Business School is supporting innovators and budding entrepreneurs with their ‘G-Accelerator’ – an exciting start-up hub looking for next-generation entrepreneurs.

Located in Europe across Spain and Malta, GBSB Global is dedicated to preparing highly skilled graduates for successful careers across various industries. With a strong focus on innovation and technology, their G-Accelerator is one way that the business school helps those with innovative and disruptive ideas that intend to launch a business that will help contribute to a better society.

“The G-Accelerator wants to engage with individuals concerned about bettering the world through sustainable business models that are socially responsible, as well as being economically and environmentally sustainable,” says Xavier Arola, Director of the G-Accelerator.

This is why, once a year, the G-Accelerator has an ‘Impact Call’. This is a six-month pre-accelerator programme that provides training, mentoring, networking, and financial support services to early-stage entrepreneurs focused on developing a venture with a ‘Triple Impact’ – this means they are socially, economically and environmentally sustainable.

The G-Accelerator is an impressive initiative that sources and supports those who want to develop their own business in a short but highly efficient time frame. The Impact Call is a roadmap of 20 weeks from the first steps of ideation to the market, from product development to managerial skills and acquaintance modules.

The G-Accelerator is in partnership with the Universitat de Vic – Universitat Central de Catalunya, the Institute of Social Innovation (University of Northampton) and It is funded and supported by European Social Fund and the Catalan Government.

It’s a great example within the business education industry of supporting the entrepreneurial goals of students and graduates who want to make a positive impact with new businesses.
