This year's Vital Voices GROW Fellowship has strated receiving applications.
The VV GROW Fellowship is a highly competitive one-year accelerator program for women owners of small and medium sized businesses in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa.
The program includes customized business skills training, technical assistance, leadership development, and access to networks to grow their businesses and increase their leadership impact. Through global and regional online and in-person trainings, fellows focus on strategy and long-term business value paired with action-oriented plans.
Global Virtual Learning: Over 4-6 months, fellows complete a series of webinars, assignments, online courses, assessments, and one-on-one calls with peers, Vital Voices staff, and trainers. They assess the current state of their business and leadership in order to determine where they are; analyze their business to identify opportunities for growth; and define specific business growth goals.
Regional In-Person Training: Each year, fellows from each region gather in one country to participate in a four-day regional, in-person training workshop that will guide them in creating an action plan outlining how they will accomplish their business growth goals.
Growth Services and Support: Following the in-person training, fellows apply and revise their action plans throughout the last 6 months of the fellowship.
Apply before January 31 here.
