UN-backed sustainable fellowship announced

Co-working space Impact Hub, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), has launched a new Sustainable Development Goal Fellowship intended to assist entrepreneurs in cultivating innovative and sustainable projects.

Announced last Friday, the fellowship will be awarded to five ventures that focus on tackling one of the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals, which include improvements in health, education, gender equality, climate change and affordable and clean energy.

Selected teams will get six months of free workspace at Impact Hub, online tools to promote venture growth, exclusive classes and meet-ups, access to the UNDP extended network, and access to 20 impact mentors in Cambodia, according to a press release announcing the fellowship.

The application is available online and will be open until March 7. Winners will be announced on March 9, and will have the opportunity to present their ventures at the SDG Fellowship Showcase on March 17.
