Genesis Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship

As the Business Advisory Division of Genesis Bank, the Genesis Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship (GBIE) was created to provide business education and support to help accelerate the success of entrepreneurs and small-midsized, family-owned, and minority-owned businesses in Southern California. The GBIE serves as a center of influence and connectivity; creating, presenting, and aggregating business resources, initiatives, and support from the brightest minds, across a wide range of topics and industries. The GBIE offers in-person & virtual educational workshops, experiential storytelling events, and business literacy resources through a variety of different educational mediums.

Accelerating Entrepreneurship, Growth, Leadership, and Success

The GBIE works to bring the business community together. We do this through a series of strategic partnerships with like-minded community and educational partners designed to create transformative environments, experiences, and opportunities that help community leaders and business owners thrive in all stages of the business life cycle.



Members of the GBIE consist of entrepreneurs, family businesses, minority-owned businesses, traditional businesses, nonprofits, and local governments and municipalities, and the leaders within those organizations. Members have access to frequent workshops, consultation with business leaders, access to experiential storytelling events, and effective networking opportunities
