Petra Benes

International growth specialist / PoGB


I joined forces with Generous Minds because together you can achieve so much more. Teamwork makes the dream work. The change in the world I would like to see is good business dominating economies everywhere and that eventually companies that put profit before planet become extinct. My contribution to this vision is that I help internationalize the social enterprise. Scaling impact from local to global. But that is not all I do. Within Generous Minds I also take the role of PoGB because internationalization requires thorough preparation and a good scanning of the company on all levels. A generalist, systematic and holistic approach that works for every company, also the ones without international ambitions. I also am member of the Generous Money team, helping to find the right investors for the social enterprises. And lately I am developing myself more and more as a CSR consultant – I call that Company Social Responsibility, since all companies have a social responsibility, not just the corporates. Let’s make every business a good business!

Colleagues describe me as straight, down to earth, hands-on, inspired, open and with a good sense of humor (I asked 😉)

When not working I enjoy reading, walking/hiking, writing, traveling (lately discovering The Netherlands, so beautiful!), having drinks and beautiful conversations with friends, and learning new languages.
