Applications are now open for the Global Good Fund Fellowship, a 12-month program supporting the leadership development of social enterprise leaders across the globe.

The Global Good Fund develops each innovator by pairing them with professional executive coach and  c-suite business executive who serves as a mentor, and by providing leadership assessment resources, a network of peers, sector expertise, and targeted financial capital.

This fellowship is for social entrepreneurs who are working to create social impact within their communities and are ready to scale their leadership to further their business.

Who they are looking for?

The Global Good Fund Fellowship is for innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders of positive social impact organizations. This program is for emerging leaders, entrepreneurs who are 40 or under, with diverse ethnic, religious, economic, geographic and gender experiences. Ideal entrepreneurs are in a leadership role, and are dedicated full-time to their organization that’s over 1-year-old.

What do they look for in a fellow?
The Global Good Fund Fellowship is open to social enterprise leaders based anywhere in the world, who are trying to make the world a better place through business. Ideal Fellows are dedicated to their own self-discovery and development, under 40 years of age, hold a leadership position at their social enterprise, operating for 3-5 years and demonstate coachability.
