IDEX stands for Intrapreneur Development Experience. Our mission is to create the next wave of “social intrapreneurs” who will support, lead and advance the work of socially-focused enterprises around the world. Social intrapreneurs are becoming key actors in the race towards a new kind of economy. These changemakers are supporting and leading the development of scalable solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges - from health to education to environment. Contrary to social entrepreneurs, social intrapreneurs are innovating from within an existing enterprise or organization.
Since 2010, IDEX has served as an impact career launch-pad and human capital investor for over 150 fellows from over 16 countries. We believe that by investing in intrapreneurial leaders today, while they are beginning to determine their future career path, we are planting seeds for future leaders of tomorrow. We are determined architects working to bridge the gap between young professionals and high impact careers. Over our five year history, IDEX has come to understand that in order for today’s emerging professionals to launch purposeful careers with social impact, they must engage in strategic and relevant professional development experiences.
The core of our program is the IDEX formula 6=2. Our Global Fellow Program offers 6 months of intense emerging market field experience and leadership training that equips our fellows with 2 years of marketable experience. Our math was called crazy, nonsensical, unattainable, and well…just plain wrong! We thought so too until we discovered that our formula is powerful and effective.
IDEX currently places fellows with Enterprise partners located across India in Hyderabad, Mumbai and Bangalore. We are actively exploring other cities across India and look forward to adding expanding our operations in 2015.
Each year, the IDEX Global Fellows Program invites a select number of individuals to take part in six-months of intrapreneurial leadership training across India. Fellows gain emerging market experience while working hands on with socially-focused enterprises who deliver high impact solutions in local and global communities.
Since 2010, the IDEX Global Fellows Program has successfully trained and prepared over 150 college graduates and young professionals from all corners of the world for their transition into high impact careers.
Candidates must possess the minimum qualifications to be eligible for the IDEX Fellowship:
- Bachelor or Masters/Graduate Degree (BS/BA/BBA must be obtained prior to start of program);
- Age limit: 21-35 years old
