Do you want to start your own socially responsible business that strives to improve your community, your city, or even the world?
If you are a young Jewish adult who wants to launch a social enterprise, we encourage you to apply to be a JCC PresenTense Chicago fellow.
Our fellows participate in a six-month community mini-MBA curriculum that accelerates their ideas into launched social ventures. The program begins on Dec 9, 2012 and culminates on June 13, 2013 with Launch Night, a large-scale celebration of the fellows' accomplishments. We expect our fellows to commit at least 8 to 10 hours per week during the fellowship program; most fellows work full-time and all programming occurs on Sundays or week nights.
The program consists of an intensive curriculum that encompasses all of the stages of starting a business, and we expect our fellows to complete incremental milestones that make them credible entrepreneurs by Launch Night. Each fellow is matched with a coach and a mentor.
If accepted as a fellow, you will be matched with seasoned entrepreneurs (your mentors) and personal coaches who will provide you with one-on-one encouragement and guidance. You will enjoy the camaraderie and support of a community of committed fellows. Providing access to industry experts such as financial professionals, lawyers and business consultants, JCC PresenTense Chicago will help you down the path of successful social entrepreneurship.
AND IT'S FREE! WHAT A DEAL!
Get started now. Review and complete our on-line application. Our application deadline is Tuesday Nov 20. Please be prepared to attend a mandatory Speed Interviewing Event on Wed Nov 28 at 7pm in River North; at this event, our Admissions team, potential mentors and potential coaches will meet you to assess the viability of your venture idea and in order to provide a great match between you and your mentor and coach.
All program events will take place in the Lakeview area of Chicago with easy access to parking.
