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.
