The Global Good Fund Fellowship 

The Global Good Fund Fellowship is a 12-month program supporting the leadership development of young social entrepreneurs across the globe. The Global Good Fund develops these innovators by pairing them with executives who serve as Mentors, and by providing leadership assessment resources, a network of peers, sector expertise, and targeted financial capital.

The Global Good Fund supports the Fellows in their natural work environments through a first-of-its-kind 360 leadership assessment tool, the 360 MIRROR, specifically designed for social entrepreneurs. This tool is a behavior-based assessment of the skills and values associated with great leaders.

The results of the assessment and conversations with a Global Good Fund Leadership Development Coach form the basis for a Leadership Development Plan to be implemented with support of a Global Good Fund Mentor. The network of Mentors includes leaders like Ted Leonsis, Owner & CEO of Monumental Sports & Entertainment, Tracy Fitzsimmons, President of Shenandoah University, Sami Inkinen, Co-Founder of Trulia, Lydia Thomas, former CEO of Noblis, and Pete Smith, CEO of Al Tayyar Energy.

Fellows will be exposed to various activities throughout the year, such as our annual Summit, a four-day curated leadership development experience for the Fellows and Alumni. Each Fellow retakes the leadership assessment at the end of the Fellowship and then 1, 3, 5, and 10 years post Fellowship to track his/her growth.


Phase 1: Preliminary Questionnaire

Phase I consists of a preliminary questionnaire that is reviewed for alignment with Fellowship criteria. In order to be considered for the fellowship, candidates must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • The enterprise must have at least one full-time employee in addition to the candidate;
  • The candidate is committed full‐time to running his/her enterprise;
  • The candidate is under 40 years of age (if 40 or older, explain rationale for joining fellowship);
