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!
In 2010, Gray Matters Capital launched the IDEX accelerator, a professional 6-month fellowship program for those aspiring to work in social enterprise. They have since transformed from a pilot project of 10 fellows to a global initiative with 300+ alumni.
They 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.
- Professional development and personal support from a dedicated program manager
- An advising program that pairs fellows with local mentors
- Monthly capacity building workshops
- Networking opportunities
- Internationally recognized professional certification in Social Enterprise
- Housing in Bangalore for 1st month
- Monthly Transportation Stipend of $125 (appx. 8500 Indian Rupees) for the 6 months
- Post-fellowship support
