The New Ventures team at Unitus is seeking highly motivated social business entrepreneurs to participate in our Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) program for 2008.
EIRs at Unitus spend up to one year launching their venture with the deep support of socially-committed business professionals who have a passion for alleviating poverty through microfinance. The EIR program will provide strategic support to entrepreneurs dedicated to building social businesses that can scale to improve the income generation potential for millions of disadvantaged people in India or Sub-Saharan Africa. The program will include work space, resources for travel/activities, and opportunities to network with and learn from our microfinance partners around the world.
