BeVisioneers: The Mercedes-Benz Fellowship

Core elements of the Fellowship program

  • A unique & collaborative framework
    beVisioneers focuses on specific sustainability zones, for example, Food Waste or Clean Water.

  • They match the Fellows’ ideas and projects to these areas, giving them exactly what they need to tackle these challenges over 12 months.

  • Projects will be carried out in close proximity to align with broader efforts around localization. With this approach, they can amplify impact.

    The three learning labs

  • The program will focus on three different learning labs over 12 months:

  • Personal sustainability, focused on your individual and collective leadership, well-being and resilience.

  • Environmental Sustainability, focused on your knowledge and application of planet-positive concepts and practices.

  • Venture sustainability, focused on your entrepreneurial mindsets and skills to turn ideas into action.

    Regional & global summits

  • You will get a chance to meet other Fellows face-to-face at the regional summits.

  • During these summits you will hear from industry experts.

  • There will also be a chance to attend a global summit, which will include pitch competitions and opportunities to win funding for your project.
