Since 2011, we have placed more than 100 scouts in 21 countries around the world working with social enterprises, impact investment funds, and social venture accelerator programs.
Our fellows provide a variety of services to social entrepreneurs and investors, from transaction-level assistance to crowd-sourcing facilitation. They help conceptualize a business idea, develop a business plan and an entrepreneurial team, provide due diligence, obtain investment capital, and scale businesses.
A fellow's overall mission is to enable the enterprising poor to scale poverty alleviation in capital-weak areas of emerging markets, while gaining career defining and life changing experiences.
The duration of a fellow's field assignment is typically six to twelve months. However, shorter project-based assignments are typically available each year.
