SAGE Mission

To help create the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders whose innovations and social enterprises address the major unmet needs of our global community.

SAGE Global and Achievers International is pleased to announce that we have created a new special competition linking our previous MDG Goal #8 Special Competition with Achievers International. As detailed in the attachment:

The SAGE-Achievers International Award for “Best International Import/Export Collaboration” will be awarded to a SAGE-Achievers teams participating in SAGE during the year. The award will be presented at the 12th annual SAGE World Cup competition held in Seoul, South Korea on 7-10 August 2015. This award is based on the UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) #8:  “Developing a global partnership for development”.


The award will be given to two teams—one each from two different countries—competing in a national SAGE competition that have successfully developed and launched a collaborative business venture. The best school partnership will be chosen from the entrants and each student enterprise in the partnership will win a prize of $250. To learn more about the MDGs and the SAGE judging criteria click here or please download “Only with Your Voice: MDG Youth Action Guide


To be eligible, your SAGE team must be linked with an overseas SAGE team; the two teams work together, trading actual products with each other. In the past, schools from all over the world have traded jewelry, chocolates, football jerseys and many other things with their partner schools through Achievers International. The programme is aimed at school students aged 13 to 19 and usually runs for a year, though the timing is flexible.

As the SAGE World Cup approaches, we will provide more details about how to submit your entry.

Dear Friends of SAGE and Youth Enterprise:

SAGE Global, in collaboration with the Center for Entrepreneurship at California State University, Chico, USA, has created a one-week Entrepreneurship Development Program (EDP) for Master Trainers/Educators, Policymakers, Administrators, and Small Business Owners.
At the end of the program, participants will:

(1) become entrepreneurship master trainers of the course entitled, “Turning Risk into Success (TRIS): A Teen Entrepreneurship Programme”;

(2) be able to develop and manage enterprise development programmes; and

(3) learn how to create and execute strategic business plans

(4) expand their social networks to include like-minded educators, business leaders, and civic leaders from the USA and other countries.

The programme includes site visits and tours of some of Chico’s most successful businesses, including:

  • Sierra Nevada Brewing Company (a socially-responsible business)
  • Computers for Classrooms (a social enterprise business)

At the end of the programme, successful participants will receive a Certificate of Completion, signed by the Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at California State University, Chico USA.

This is a rare opportunity for those who want become master entrepreneurship trainers, policy makers in entrepreneurship education, small business owners and business development consultants.

Further, all registrants who complete the TRIS lessons will also be issued a Certificate of Completion from me, the author of the lessons and also the SAGE Global CEO and Founder. We anticipate that this certificate will open many new scholarship and venture capital opportunities.
