Vital Voices Global Fellowship - Social Entrepreneurship

Vital Voices Global Fellowship – Social Entrepreneurship empowers visionary women changemakers leading for-profit, purpose-driven enterprises addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Social Entrepreneurship pillar is tailored for women entrepreneurs who understand their business valuation, have identified their business growth strategy, are interested in expanding their social impact, and are eager to scale their business through investment.   

What fellows will receive:  

Through the program, fellows will strengthen their leadership and confidence through skills building and personal development, develop global network connections, establish a foundation for solution generation and collaboration, and connect through an in-person convening and regional collaborations.  

Through the Social Entrepreneurship pillar, fellows will spend time on their growth strategy, understanding their capital needs, and gaining the knowledge to access relevant financing. Tailoring strategies to their unique requirements, they will also learn to craft compelling narratives and develop pitch decks that resonate with the ethos of the SDGs and investor expectations.  

Fellows will embark on a transformative journey, gaining essential skills, knowledge, and confidence to propel their leadership and enterprises to new heights.
