Global Founder Fellowship

Élanoura Global Founder Fellowship

You can change the course of a woman’s life and business across the world by becoming a #GlobalFounderSponsor.

Through a partnership between Élanoura and nonprofit The State of Women Institute, we have created a fellowship program to allow selected applicants from our Élanoura Collective to join a Global Founder’s Retreat. These Global Founder Fellows will get to take advantage of the unique opportunity to learn from and support other women founders from around the world while volunteering with nonprofits in our retreat destinations. Retreat founder workshops and post-retreat monthly masterminds will provide development in areas of purpose, branding, marketing, strategy, operations, financing, and more with fellow founders experiencing the same challenges and successes in their own entrepreneurial journeys.

Your contribution is 100% tax-deductible through 501c3 The State of Women Institute.

The Élanoura Collective includes women founders from 23 countries, many of which do not have the resources and networking communities widely available in other areas of the world.

We often hear from our collective members in countries where female entrepreneurship is not common that they do not know another woman founder in their city. They are yearning for support, guidance, and education to continue improving their businesses and growing their impact in their local communities and beyond. 


Step up and invest in a global female founder to give her the opportunities and support she needs to grow her business, local economy, and impact.
