Program Overview (from the program website):

The StartingBloc Fellowship begins with the Institute for Social Innovation. The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes a survey of social innovation, an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.

Accepted Candidates enter the Institute with a common set of values. They believe that economic value creation and social value creation are complementary. They believe in making money and doing good.

Throughout the Institute, Candidates (students and young professionals ages 18-28) receive the training, education, and networks necessary to accelerate their careers in social impact. StartingBloc speakers lead interactive sessions that demonstrate how to blend social and economic impact.

The Institute curriculum includes modules on social entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship (working within systems), cross sector partnerships and sustainability. Sessions are led by top academics, corporate innovators, social entrepreneurs, activists and government officials. The curriculum provides a fresh look at global issues.
