Following a rigorous three-stage selection process, the Global Good Fund selects twelve fellows each year from thousands of applications and matches them with high profile mentors from the business world, $10,000 in capital funding and experiential learning to boost their leadership skills, grow their enterprises, and achieve social impact. At The Global Good Fund’s annual summit and gala, they will have the opportunity to meet each other, network with other fellows, coaches, staff and alumni, and take part in leadership coaching, goal setting and monitoring.
The diverse 2018 cohort of Global Good Fund fellows is comprised of nine women and three men representing six nationalities who are working to solve complex social problems in six different sectors, including poverty, hunger, disability services, education, workforce development, and STEM careers. They are already driving social change on every continent, with about 75% of their collective impact outside the U.S. This international group will unite for the first time in-person in Washington, DC during The Global Good Fund Annual Summit April 25-28, 2018, and will be celebrated on April 26th at the Fund’s Annual Gala.
To date, The Global Good Fund has supported 85 social entrepreneurs from 25 countries around the globe. Their board of advisers, directors and mentors include Jeremiah Buckley of BuckleySandler LLP, EY executive Marc Andersen, Johnson & Johnson Vice President Michael Sneed, Northrop Grumman Corp. CEO Wes Bush, BET co-founder Sheila Johnson, Ted Leonsis of Monumental Sports and Entertainment and more.
