About D-Lab Scale-Ups Fellowships
The MIT D-Lab Scale-Ups Fellowship offers one year of support to social entrepreneurs bringing poverty-alleviating products and services to market at scale. Alumni of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and IDIN network members (alumni of the International Development Design Summit) are eligible to apply.
D-Lab Scale-Ups Fellows receive a $20,000 grant, tailored mentorship, skills-building, and networking opportunities. Fellows enter the program with a compelling proof-of-concept, and a few to thousands of units tested or sold. During the 12-month fellowship, entrepreneurs work to retire risk in technical feasibility and market viability, thereby positioning their ventures for investment, partnership, and growth.
Since the fellowship program’s launch in 2012, Scale-Ups has sponsored 27 fellows working on four continents in sectors including agriculture, energy, water, healthcare, housing, mobility and recycling.
