Are You a Social Pioneer?

Do you have an idea to change the world?

If so, pre-applications for Summer 2009 PresenTense Fellowships are now available.

The PresenTense Fellowship begins mid-June with an intensive six-week bootcamp for social entrepreneurs. Based in Jerusalem, the Fellows are trained in the practical skills of social start-up development and assisted by the PresenTense Network to launch their ventures into the world.

Accepted fellows are provided with residency for a period of six weeks during which they have access to skill building sessions in project management and execution; meet with leading figures in the fields of venture capital, philanthropy, hi-tech, social action, education and the arts; are mentored by a leading innovator in their field; and network with socially-minded entrepreneurs from around the world.

Those who cannot commit for the entire six weeks can apply as members — individuals who have access to the Institute work-space where they can meet other entrepreneurs and work on their projects, meet with leading figures from across the disciplines at public lectures, and network with others in the Jerusalem area.

Sound like you make the cut? Know someone who may? Apply now.

about: The PresenTense Institute is an accelerator for social ventures that seeks to solve problems facing the Jewish People and the World. They help individual social entrepreneurs take their ideas, build them into pioneering expeditions, and launch them into a supportive community committed to its success.

PresenTense is dedicated to transforming the way the Jewish people think, program and work. They’re inspired by the vision of Zionist thinkers across the ideological spectrum, such as Ahad Ha’am, AD Gordon and Ze’ev Jabotinsky, who foresaw Israel as the laboratory for the renewal of the Jewish People and the reinvigoration of Hebrew culture.
