Since 2011, we've placed more than 170 fellows in 28 countries around the world working with social enterprises, impact investment firms, 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.
Through fellows, we seek to enable the enterprising poor and to scale poverty alleviation in capital-weak areas of emerging markets while gaining career-defining and transformative 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.
