Stuff About Me:

Thank you for coming to my fundraising page!

Reaching the goal of this campaign, means that with your help, I will be able to assist  the StartingBloc Fellowship  2015 and will leverage my abilities to generate a wider social impact.  


I am Paula Gaviria, an entrepreneur passionate for sustainability. I have worked in several initiatives focused on social impact, including the founding of two endeavors creating jobs for vulnerable communities and as a member of one of the first political campaigns advocating for animal rights in Colombia. Last year I was named by the World Economic Forum as a member of the Global Shapers Community, where I work with fellow young leaders in projects that create social and economic development.

So what is StartingBloc?

The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes a survey of social innovation, an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.

Candidates participate in a series of workshops and activities designed to inspire, instruct, and stretch their limits. They'll learn directly from high impact entrepreneurs and change leaders, work with proven frameworks for delivering change, and build relationships with new life-long allies.

How will StartingBloc help me achieve my goals?

 -  Giving me cutting-edge tools that will help me validate strategies faster and will help me stay on track.

-Improve my skills to engage others with my purpose of making the world a better place.

- Contact institutions to boost my efforts.

- Increase my network, allowing me to nourish from the experiences of fellow young leaders coming from different backgrounds.

- Bring back to the Global Shapers community my learning from Starting Bloc, help sustain our purpose and thrive in our objective to generate shared value, specially in my local hub.
