Currently, the Savvy mentorship team includes 154 changemakers from 39 countries, with a combined experience of over 700 years, and they are looking for more amazing persons to join the team. Savvy volunteers as mentors because they believe that entrepreneurs are the catalyst for growth and the creators of wealth, so they’re building a program that is shaping passionate young professionals into the finest impact-driven entrepreneurs and equipping them with all they need to be successful at what they do.

Savvy Fellowship kicks off with a rigorous 12-weeks e-learning experience. As a Savvy Fellow, you will get to learn everything from ideation to venture scaling, including how to start, build, and scale an impact venture. Using visual presentations, they’ll help you answer all the relevant questions you need to kickstart that amazing impact venture, gain early traction, achieve product-market fit, and scale into newer markets. Some of the things you’ll learn during the program are ‘understanding your customer’, ‘building a product or service that effectively solves their key challenges’, and ‘effectively positioning your solution in the market.’ Savvy is for every impact entrepreneur, no matter what stage your venture is.

What is Savvy?

It’s no news that every day, I love sharing with others what I’ve learned from my experience as an entrepreneur, and Savvy is just an extension of that personal journey of sharing for me. Savvy is [a 12-week-long] virtual fellowship program that runs [through out the year].

Some of the things you’ll learn as a Savvy Fellow include fundraising for your business, building the right team to execute your business strategies, building buzz around your product or service, achieving product-market fit, scaling into new markets and verticals, and building customer loyalty and retention.
