Savvy Fellowship Program 2020 

Aspiring entrepreneurs and early-stage changemakers who are passionate about solving Africa’s pressing issues are invited to apply for the fellowship. Savvy is a virtual 12-week program that will provide you with necessary skills in business and marketing. Application process is ongoing.

The Savvy fellowship program is organized by a team of 55 changemakers from 20 countries. They volunteer at Savvy since they believe that entrepreneurs are the catalyst for growth and the creators of wealth. The fellowship aims to shape passionate young professionals into the finest impact-driven entrepreneurs and equip them with all they need to be successful at what they do.

At the end of the program you will be able to identify your ideal target customer and build a product or service that exceeds their expectations. Additionally, you will draft a solid go-to-market strategy, revenue model, and customer acquisition strategy. You will cover information on legal structure for your business, raise capital for your business, and forge strong strategic partnerships. While learning at your own pace, you’re also offered mentorship from entrepreneurs who have built post-revenue businesses in diverse sectors.

Application process is ongoing.


Main criteria

The fellowship is open to any applicant aged 18-40 from anywhere in the world. There are no cohorts as the fellowship accepts new applications on a rolling basis all year around.
