Let's change the world.

The Forbes Ignite Impact Fellowship was born from research and ideation from our network, while the unique structure and curriculum of the program was designed by merging two of our partner initiatives: Reimagining Mentorship and the Future of Work.

Why our fellowship?

Our previous fellows had kind words to say.
01

Discover innovation, creativity, and human-centered technology.

"I really loved learning about design thinking. I would take this back to my day-to-day work. I love the idea of rapid iteration. It's a neat way of thinking strategically."

- Erin Kelly, Spring '21
02

Collaborate with international experts facilitated by "learning by doing."

"The big change in me was learning the impact investing concept, and now that I know this, all the work I've done in my life is incomplete and I need to take it to the next level to get the complete picture."

- Devyani Chowdhury, Spring '21
03

Exchange knowledge across regions, countries, industries, functions and experience levels.

"It wasn't just the practical tools, but the people I've met and the interactions with other the fellows have helped create the biggest change for me."

- Adanna Chukwuma, Spring '21
04

Re-design your career journey.

"There was a conversation we had that pushed me to take a new job. I'm so happy in my new role now, and I think that push has made me want to reach out to people and throw ideas out there."

- Meghana Bhimarao, Spring '21
