Yunus and Youth Fellowships for Social Entrepreneurs

The Yunus&Youth is accepting applications for its Fellowship Program which is a six-month online program designed to empower young social entrepreneurs to develop their full potential by strengthening business models, building compelling strategies for social ventures and expanding professional networks.

Benefits

Mentoring Relationship

  • Young social entrepreneurs and corporate professionals are connected by Y&Y to turn their business expertise and passion for social change into an actionable plan. Mentors are matched with a co-mentor and a Fellow based on mentors’ strengths and the needs of the entrepreneur.

    Fellows are educated through a structured 6-month online program, ensuring an effective transfer of knowledge and guidance due to mentoring guides, Y&Y monitoring, as well as frequent performance reviews.

    Business Plan Development

With the support of their peers and mentors, Y&Y Fellows complete a series of assignments comprehending the following modules: Solution and Strategy, Revenue Model, Marketing Strategy, Impact Measurement, Partnerships, Funding and Grants, and Pitch and Storytelling.

    Final Online Pitch Competition

  • This is the very last phase of the Y&Y Fellowship Program. It is an opportunity for Y&Y
