Agora Consulting Fellowship

Established in 2011, the Agora Consulting Fellowship is a 9-month professional development program for emerging business and investment leaders dedicated to unleashing the power of entrepreneurship to create positive social and environmental change.
Agora Consultants act as advisors, strategists, connectors, community builders, and executors to help impact-focused entrepreneurs to access the knowledge, networks and capital they need to grow their businesses. Agora Consultants’ work is critical to building a functioning early-stage capital market and to helping impact investors address their own barriers to investment, including weak deal flow, limited exit opportunities, high transaction costs, and few co-investment opportunities.
Consultants form the core of the Agora Accelerator program. Each Consultant typically works with 4-5 companies. Consultants work under the direction of the Accelerator Manager, and have significant responsibility, autonomy, and opportunity to work as a social entrepreneur within the Agora community.
Applications for the 2016 Agora Consulting Fellowship are open from July 27th to August 28th.
