Apply for The Generalist Global Program!


The Generalist Global Program welcomes entrepreneurs from Latin America, Africa and South East Asia with ventures in all sectors. The program is an online remote collaboration opportunity that is unpaid. Students interested in the program must submit their application and resume. The entrepreneur’s venture needs to be in line with our social impact policy based on the UNDP’s Economic, Social and Governance (ESG) factors. We conduct in-house due diligence to assess the entrepreneur’s venture’s compliance through a thorough application process requiring official documentation, referrals, interviews, and performance data.
