We are an incubator for the developing world.
A talented community of people developing tailored solutions to enable 1 billion people.
Solving the world’s social issues using enterprise
We create socially beneficial products and services that are tailored to solving issues in local communities. Affordable, effective, sustainable, and consistently available solutions to real-world problems.
Feel like all you know about your degree is what you’ve heard in lectures? Time to get out of the classroom! A Project Everest Internship not only applies the knowledge you’ve learned at university to a real world context, but to a venture at a grassroots level in a developing country. Our ventures tackle a range of social issues, so choosing an internship that aligns with your degree helps to give you a unique perspective and edge within your field as both a student and a graduate.
Our training is immersive, comprehensive, and one-of-a-kind – and boy do we pride ourselves on it. We have doubled our investment in experiential learning to ensure that everyone from trekkers to senior leaders is armed with the hard and soft skills necessary for success in country. As a trekker, this training extends into your internship to put these new skills into practice, and as a leader you have the opportunity to continue further with your personal development in a paid position.
We believe that the world’s most pressing social issues can be solved using social enterprise. Our ventures aim to solve complex issues, including agriculture and food security, health, environmental sustainability, and social consulting. Through applying the core methodologies of design thinking and lean startup principles, our ventures engage local communities to provide genuine tailored solutions to real issues.
How It Works
Project Everest is dedicated to helping realise the Sustainable Development Goals.
Connecting with local communities
We collaborate with local communities to engage them in change and to be as effective and efficient as possible. Operating across multiple countries, offering varied opportunities to maximise our global social impact.
Designing socially beneficial products and services
We design socially beneficial products and services to solve issues identified by the community. Providing affordable, consistent and tailored products and services delivered through a social enterprise model.
Sustaining social impact
We build projects and businesses from scratch to ensure they work and that their impact is ongoing and sustainable. Focusing on people, the environment, economy and communities – using stakeholder consultation and feedback to ensure sustainability.
Investing in a sustainable future
We increase the employability and skillsets of young people by empowering them with opportunities previously unheard of. Delivering the most comprehensive experiential and practical training at a university level and ongoing professional development opportunities.
Building engagement and understanding
We build deep cultural engagement across borders to break down barriers and raise understanding at the grassroots. Build enterprises to deliver impact in communities by the volume of goods and services sold through our social enterprise ventures.
