VV GROW Fellowship Program
Vital Voices identifies high potential yet underserved women-owned small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are on the cusp of growth as the “missing middle” in the global economy. Based on its experience with women business owners around the world, Vital Voices has launched the VV GROW Fellowship Program, a one-year competitive program to support growth-oriented women business owners to take their businesses and leadership to the next level. The program supports women-owned enterprises in, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa to set and achieve business growth goals with a unique blend of online learning, in-person training, and tailored support services.
VV GROW Fellows will gain knowledge and skills in the following topics:
- Business Planning
Guides fellows in validating their business growth goals and developing a plan to achieve those goals. By the end of the workshop, participants will have an actionable 3-5 year plan for business growth.
- Leadership Training
Utilizes the Vital Voices Leadership Model to instill methods of building leadership skills to positively impact their business, employees and wider community.
- Executive Financial Management

- Networking for Business Professionals
Guides fellows to create their personal brand and “elevator pitch” to promote their business and successfully utilize new connections.
- Understanding Your Market
Guides fellows in identifying key market opportunities such as expanding existing markets and accessing new ones.
The one-year program timeline consists of 4 components:
1. A competitive participant selection process and business needs assessment.
2. Online preparatory sessions with Harvard Manage Mentor and Vital Voices advisorsbefore the training, that guide fellows in drafting a business plan that they will refine throughout the training.
3. An in-person regional training.
4. An opportunity to access follow-on services such as technical advising, webinars featuring technical experts, business to business opportunities, mentors, and small grants.
