Echoing Green Fellows

Posted on by Prapti

Echoing Green is a two year Fellowship program that from thousands of applicants picks about one percent to sponsor for up to $90,000 for their promising businesses for the future.  The people who are sponsored are then known as Echoing Green Fellows. They then have access to Echoing Green’s network of many connections, leadership opportunities, and support and counseling. If you are some one looking for small business grants for women, this might be a good opportunity for you.

Their website says they offer many incentives, such as a pay of $80,000 for one person ($90,000 for two), a health insurance plan, and other things like a yearly professional development stipend.

You will be assessed on your passion, resilience, leadership skills, and ability to attract resources. Your idea must be innovative, important, have great potential, and also be a good business model.

Out of the 38 finalists for 2012, 20 winners were chosen. Some of these ideas include IFOSTER, which has a description of “Supplying at-risk foster care youth with tools to become successful, independent adults” and the XINFUGO GROUP that delivers safe products to rural parts of China. The winners will begin their fellowship July 2012 to June 30, 2014.

The next application cycle starts soon in Fall 2012. If you are interested, stay posted to their website for exact dates and more information on the eligibility requirements, assessment criteria, and other general information.
