How to Apply

The application is comprised of four parts

  • Part 2 of the application consists of an informal video recording that answers the following questions:
      • Your motivation to set-up your enterprise;
      • What your enterprise does; and
      • Why you and your enterprise are unique

    and can address this specific problem area more effectively than anyone else.

    The Candidate’s video will be reviewed and scored on a 1-5 scale, 1 being the lowest score and 5 being the highest. Candidates who receive a score of 3 or higher will advance to the next stage.

  • Part 3 of the application consists of a written section that assesses leadership, the enterprise, and social impact. Each written application will be read and scored by at least two reviewers.
  • Part 4 of the application consists of a 2 hour virtual site visit. The Global Good Fund will speak to the candidate, core team members, and community members. These conversations will occur throughout the selection process. Finalists will be notified about their selection result in December 2016.
