Meet The Fellows: Our Ninth Cohort

20 emerging social entrepreneurs join our 9th cohort

Meet the Fellows dedicating the next year to tackling inequality through social entrepreneurship. We’re incredibly excited by the potential in bringing together such a diversity of professional skills and backgrounds from the worlds of science, design, journalism, academia and activism, to name a few.

This is our most experienced cohort yet, with our Fellows bringing an average of 8 years’ professional experience to the programme.
