Halcyon Incubator Intensive Fellowships
As with all our programs, each Intensive Fellowship includes training in investment readiness, business fundamentals, impact, and leadership. Fellowships are carefully crafted to maximize the cohort’s time and focus on the most pertinent content, whether that means going deep on certain skills training, networking and developing critical business relationships, coaching and mentorship, or other areas we know are essential to growing social enterprises and bolstering the leadership of their founders.
