Apply to be a StartingBloc Fellow!

Want to be part of a group of emerging leaders and learn about the latest innovations in corporate social responsibility and social entrepreneurship? Apply to StartingBloc!

StartingBloc’s mission begins by training tomorrow’s most promising young leaders with a new mindset towards value creation. Each year, working with an admission committee composed of MBA admissions directors, we select a cadre of young leaders age 19-26 years old to become StartingBloc Fellows. Once accepted, Fellows participate in our Institute for Social Innovation. Held at our partner graduate schools, the Institute features thought-leading practitioners and academics who train Fellows in the most cutting edge theories and industry best practices towards sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and corporate social innovation. The Institute serves as both calibrator and middle ground for a globally diverse group of young leaders who will work in all three sectors together to drive sustainability. Once Fellows graduate from the Institute, they become part of StartingBloc’s growing global network of young changemakers.

Want to learn more about the program? Meet one of the StartingBloc Fellows – Nitin Rao:

Shortly after the 2007 London Institute, Nitin Rao, a StartingBloc Fellow from India, returned to his country to create and online network called Let Me Know. The website provides young leaders with a platform to share career opportunities, as well as best practices in social innovation. Based on his success, Nitin visited the US in April 2008 to present a paper at Harvard University and reconnect with his StartingBloc peers. Nitin was recently accepted to MIT Sloan School of Management, one of StartingBloc’s founding partners.

Applications for the Greater Boston and Greater New York Institutes will run from September 15 to December 1, 2008. Click here to apply to the 2009 Institute for Social Innovation.
