Our team has spent over four months and reviewed over 1,400 applications to find you! Out of hundreds of people who applied for the IDEX Global Fellowship we felt your personal strengths, passion for social change, and commitment to expanding the practice of intrapreneurship was aspirations and we want to be a part of your journey. We believe that your IDEX experience will be highly rewarding personally and professionally, and that you will share the knowledge and insight you gain as an IDEX fellow with many others throughout your life. This belief is what guides our organization.

We know that the decision to spend six months in a rigorous fellowship is not a decision that should be taken lightly. We encourage you to take the next few days to seriously consider this offer and its benefits to your future goals and aspirations. We also invite you to learn more about the IDEX experience and hear from alumni, fellows, partners and staff (please click here).

IDEX has formed a partnership with Indigogo to make it easier for fellows to fundraise for their fellowship. Indigogo allows fellows to create a personal fundraising page where you can direct family, friends and supporters and sponsors. To date, IDEX fellows have fundraised more than $35,000 from supporters. 

*Additionally, fellows will gain access to IDEX's Fundraising Guide which offers expert videos from young professionals like yourself who've fundraised more than $1million, email and marketing templates and tips to help you get started to help you get started with creating your own customized fundraising campaign.
