Savvy is a virtual Fellowship program for passionate and brilliant young professionals seeking to be part of the new generation of impact entrepreneurs.
No cohort. No application deadline. No ethnic restriction. Ages 18 – 40. It’s a rolling program, so we accept new applications year-round.
Here are some reasons why you should be a Savvy Fellow.
For 12 weeks, you’ll learn how to start, build, and scale an impact venture. Using visual presentations, we’ll help you answer all the relevant questions you need to kickstart that amazing impact venture, gain early traction, achieve product-market fit, and scale into newer markets. Savvy is for every impact entrepreneur, no matter what stage your venture is.
While learning, you’re offered mentorship as well, which is a great way to have a better understanding of your industry. Mentorship comes in two ways: peer-to-peer and expert. Since all Savvy Fellows don’t have the same level of experience, more experienced and knowledgeable Fellows help guide others. A select few Fellows get expert mentorship from industry experts.
“Once a Savvy Fellow, always a Savvy Fellow.” Savvy isn’t just a 12-weeks learning, assessment, and mentorship program, it’s a lifelong entrepreneurial learning process. Post Fellowship, you can constantly access your Savvy Fellowship account and have access to our weekly updated resources, in the form of entrepreneurial tips, nuggets, and opportunities.
Every day, we receive and review hundreds of applications from exceptional young professionals around the world. Every day, we select the finest of them to join the Savvy family. So far, we have received 100,913 applications, and we have selected and trained 8,350 Fellows from 159 countries around the world.
