About Best

The Business & Entrepreneur Support Team (BEST) is a national network of business professionals, investors, research institutions, private philanthropic foundations, and other organizations that invest money and expertise to propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets.

Our members are the vanguard of a movement that is focused on small and growing businesses (SGBs) that create economic, environmental, and social benefits. Ultimately, we seek to build sustainable prosperity in both the urban and rural communities.

BEST is a member-driven organization housed within the Community Partners Center For Entrepreneurial Development, a national non-profit organization that promotes entrepreneurial development.

BEST members share a common goal: to dramatically increase the amount and effectiveness of capital and business assistance provided to entrepreneurs.

BEST identifies common strategic challenges and opportunities facing SGBs, and, based on these findings, provides programs and services for our members and the sector as a whole. We aspire to be the leading convener and conduit for organizations and individuals committed to supporting SGBs. We act as a trusted advocate for the SGB sector, educating investors and policy makers about the extraordinary opportunity this sector represents.

This is done primarily in four ways:

Seminars, which help participants reflect on what they think makes a good society, thereby deepening knowledge, broadening perspectives and enhancing their capacity to solve the problems leaders face.

Fellowships, which bring a selected class of proven leaders and entrepreneurs together for an intense purpose-driven program. The fellows become better leaders and apply their skills to significant challenges.

Policy programs, which serve as forums for analysis, consensus building, and problem solving on a wide variety of issues.

Public conferences and events, which provide a platform for people to network and share ideas.
