Fellows

Promoting and supporting social entrepreneurs to spearhead change at the grassroots and build a better world

ABOUT FELLOWS

RoundGlass Fellows is a one-year-long programme for social entrepreneurs working in the domain of wellbeing in India. We provide grants, masterclasses and coaching on wellbeing, life decisions and business outcomes to amplify our fellows’ work. Accomplished entrepreneurs, artists, thought leaders and creators serve as mentors and use their experience and wisdom to guide fellows in their entrepreneurial journey. Through the programme, we aim to create a blueprint of a comprehensive and effective programme for social sector entrepreneurs that also takes into consideration their personal wellbeing.
