Through the Executive in Residence program, corporate executives work on-site with leading social entrepreneurs around the world for a period of from two weeks to six months. During this time with the social entrepreneur, the executive tackles a challenge that is critical to the social entrepreneur’s ability to scale their impact.

Simultaneously, by working with the world’s leading social innovators, the executives bring back lessons learned about new innovations, emerging markets, and leadership techniques.
