The Global Good Fund identifies high-potential leaders and accelerates their success through a year-long, virtual Fellowship focused on leadership development. It supports global social entrepreneurs with proven methods, such as executive mentorship, leadership coaching, and access to capital, to accelerate their growth and impact. Moreover, it believes investing in leadership development is the best tool for enterprise growth and achieving global good.
Following a rigorous 3-stage process, selected Global Good Fund Fellows to embark on a structured 12-month journey of experiential learning, leadership development coaching, and executive mentoring that leverages proprietary leadership development tools and methods honed since 2013. At its core is The Global Good Fund 360 MIRROR – the first evidence-based leadership assessment created specifically for social entrepreneurs. Further, its proven leadership development tools and services are also available to individuals, social enterprise organizations, NPO’s and impact-driven corporations.
We administer the 360 MIRROR leadership assessment tool designed specifically for social entrepreneurs to derive feedback from their board, staff, peers, and stakeholders as well as the Fellow.
The results of the 360 MIRROR are used by each Fellow with his/her Leadership Development Coach (LDC). The LDC serves as an executive coach.
Each Fellow is paired up with 1 dedicated professional leadership coach and 1 dedicated c-suite executive who serves as a mentor. Over the 12 months, Fellowship period Fellows receive intensive 1:1 coaching and mentorship sessions via phone/Skype/WhatsApp.
Fellows participate in an annual Global Good Fund Summit each spring. This 4-day event provides a platform for networking between Fellows, LDCs, Coaches, Alumni, and The Global Good Fund staff.
Each Fellow receives a leadership development grant of up to $10,000.
Fellows are part of a global cohort of social entrepreneurs. The Global Good Fund facilitates regular interaction among the Fellows.
