Impact Investing Fellowship Series: ProInspire

The next organization in our Impact Investing Fellowship Series is ProInspire.

ProInspire is U.S.-based, U.S. placeproinspirement focused organization that is designed to build a robust pipeline of talent into the social impact sector.  They focus exclusively on the nonprofit, public, and social enterprise sectors and often place talent in Washington DC and the San Francisco/Bay Area.

Unlike most Fellowship Programs, ProInspire connects talent directly with organizations for a 12-month period with a competitive
market rate salary that is paid by the host organization. Fellows have successfully transitioned from organizations such as Bain, Goldman Sachs, and Google. The program has a great track record with placements often deciding to stay at their organizations (70%.).  In other cases, Fellows use their experience with ProInspire and their placement organizations to enter into higher education programs.

Things to note:

  • In the past fellows have completed impact investing focused fellowships at organizations such as ACCION.
  • Placements are restricted to the United States and to those who can acquire the appropriate work permits.
