Beyond Research

GBL is dedicated to improving the lives of low-income workers around the world. We realized that this requires us to go beyond ​​conducting rigorous research on the impacts of workplace programs on workers and businesses.


GBL Ventures was created with a vision to significantly advance our impact; leveraging tech, product, and business expertise to scale the proven outcomes of our evidence-based research.


With our business-ready products and solutions as well as our established partnerships with a network of private-sector employers across labor-intensive industries (e.g., garment, electronics, and automobile manufacturing, retail, and foodservice) we offer experience and scale backed by cutting-edge research.

What is GBL Ventures ?

GBL Ventures is a unit of Good Business Lab that was created in 2021 to scale the impact of proven solutions by bringing design, technology, and business expertise in-house.


Currently, we are working on developing innovative, user-focused workplace technologies for labor-intensive manufacturing settings. Our products improve and assist day-to-day functions that affect both the business and its employees; e.g., communication between workers and managers.


Along with building G.R.E.A.T (good, research-based, enabling, accessible, transformative) products backed by rigorous research, we also re-engineer processes from the ground up to drive the adoption, usage, and effectiveness of developed solutions.
