À propos

The Business Council for Peace (Bpeace) is a 15-year old award-winning non-profit organization. We lift communities in need by working with local entrepreneurs to scale their businesses, create significant employment for all, and expand the economic power of women.  We believe:  More jobs mean less violence.®

We so love what we do. We are a membership organization of more than 350 business volunteers who provide their expertise pro bono to the entrepreneurs we assist in El Salvador, Guatemala and Afghanistan. Bpeace has facilitated Road Trips where over 230 U.S. companies opened their doors and shared best practices with 80 Afghan, Guatemalan and Salvadoran Fast Runners. Many of these visits were with the support of the U.S. Department of State.

Through a four-month competitive process every year, we select only entrepreneurs with momentum, not startups. We call them Fast Runners because they are in the best position to create jobs for others in their community.

The Bpeace services that have the most significant impact on these businesses are the Road Trips to the U.S. and Bpeace’s volunteer experts who travel to work side by side with Fast Runner businesses for a week or more.

Fast Runners who have been in the Bpeace program for more than a year, average 34% job growth and 37% revenue growth. This is significantly better than the GDP growth in their countries. 44% of our Fast Runners grew full-time jobs by more than 20%. 76% of Fast Runners maintained or grew full-time jobs. 55% grew full-time employment for women.
