Nonprofit Founder - Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program

Charity Entrepreneurship

Are you interested in doing an enormous amount of good with your career? Launch a nonprofit with our evidence-based ideas, a 2-month full-time, cost-covered Incubation Program, where you can receive expert training, access to co-founder matching, up to $200,000 in seed funding, and ongoing support.

Since 2018, we have assisted 60+ individuals from a wide range of backgrounds in launching over 30 high-impact charities. Several are now on track to becoming field leaders, surpassing the cost-effectiveness of most impactful interventions in the areas of global health & development, animal welfare, and family planning (as evaluated by respected organizations such as Founders Pledge, GiveWell, and Rethink Priorities).

In applied partner projects, video lectures, and discussion groups, the Incubation Program teaches you everything you need to know to launch a field-leading charity. You’ll learn while creating the building blocks for your own charity, from a review of the evidence base to its 1-year plan and budget.

What we offer

  • 2-month full-time training with 2 weeks in-person in London.
  • Stipend of £1900/month during (and potentially up to 2 months after) the program.
  • Co-founder matching process based on real-life projects.
  • Possibility to apply for $100,000 - $200,000 seed funding (~80% of projects get funded).
  • Initial operations support and ongoing mentorship.
  • Co-working space in our London office.
  • A community of previous founders, mentors, and potential donors to help you succeed.

Potential good fit for

  • Entrepreneurially driven: Individuals who want to start new projects and make a huge impact with their careers.
  • Irrepressibly altruistic: Those who want to prioritize impact even when it's hard.
  • Fast movers: People who like to make rapid progress and work on a variety of tasks. We have found that those from consulting backgrounds, for-profit entrepreneurship, effective NGOs, or recent graduates, perform well in this program.
