WHat is the aim of the foundervine fellowship?
The Vine Community has grown from a handful of founders in London to hundreds of founders globally - most prominently the UK, US and West Africa. Our community of over 2,000 leaders are involved in leveraging technology to promote economic growth, increasing opportunity and narrowing the diversity gap in digital entrepreneurship.
The aim of the Fellows programme is to build a high-impact community of professionals that together accelerate the growth of the digital ecosystem. Fellows are like the glue that hold Foundervine's work together, interlocking and working together in order to ensure that Foundervine can support as many diverse future founders as possible.
Fellows can be members of the Foundervine community already or partners and allies who have expressed an interest in supporting the mission to help diverse entrepreneurs succeed.
WHAT DOES IT TAKES TO BE A FELLOW?
Foundervine’s community is a space for people with shared values interested in launching an innovative idea, joining a team, or building an inclusive and impactful start-up.
We are looking for:
Entrepreneurs with a demonstrated track record of success
Industry-specific professionals such as lawyers, investors, accountants and more
General business professionals with significant management experience
Technical experts such as engineers, designers and product managers
Community driven people to help us better serve our community
We ask that Fellows commit to one year supporting our services, we will then review how the year has been and whether there is more we can do to support our Fellows for another year.
Our Vine Fellows should be committed, reliable, maintain confidentiality and respect members of our community.
For supporting our community, we will be looking to recognise a subset of Fellows in the annual Future One Fifty Awards. Fellows will be awarded based on a community vote and a Foundervine director’s vote to recognise hard work carried out throughout the year.
