Application Deadline Extended!
IDEX is developing the next wave of "social intrapreneurs" (employees who innovate from within existing organizations) who will support, lead and advance the work of socially focused enterprises around the world!
The social enterprise sector is becoming increasingly competitive with growing innovation, integration of technology and inflow of investor funds. The sector is absorbing talent from different industries and slowly becoming a preferred sector to work for due to its dynamism, scope for growth and competitive compensation packages.
In 2010, Gray Matters Capital launched the IDEX accelerator, a professional 6-month fellowship program for those aspiring to work in social enterprise/development sector. We have since transformed from a pilot project of 10 fellows to a global initiative with 300+ alumni.
We have had the privilege of hosting some of the most influential fellows devoted to social enterprise and have come to better understand how to bridge the talent gap in this rapidly evolving development sector. Now, we're searching all corners of the world for individuals who are committed and passionate about having a high-impact career and advancing the social impact space.
We are seeking young professionals (ages 21-35) who are interested to develop their skills and knowledge to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals using market mechanisms. We love engineers, technology and finance folks as much as we love development sector professionals as we believe that irrespective of your training and interests, the social enterprise sector is a viable career option for you..Ideal candidates will possess:
IDEX is a tuition-based fellowship program, however, through funding from generous sponsors, IDEX is able to offer a limited number of partial scholarships to select candidates for use towards program tuition.
With each succeeding cycle, we've been reviewing many more applications. We follow a first-come-first-considered approach when reviewing applications. This means that your chances of acceptance and a greater scholarship award for the fellowship program are higher the sooner you apply and can avail preferred payment plans.
