LeapFrog offers a unique professional development opportunity to outstanding and entrepreneurial young leaders: a two-year immersion in impact investing and frontier financial services. Fellows are staffed in one of LeapFrog’s global offices and work directly with LeapFrog’s leaders to source and execute large-scale investment opportunities, to enable high-impact businesses grow and succeed, and to expand access to financial safety nets and springboards in emerging markets.
Fellows’ daily responsibilities can include investment due diligence, industry analysis, operations, marketing, transaction support and portfolio management. After two years, Fellows are considered for permanent employment with LeapFrog in management and leadership roles. Whether Fellows take their next leap with LeapFrog or elsewhere, as an intrapreneur or entrepreneur, each Fellow is permanently part of a cohort of like-minded changemakers globally, collaboratively improving the world and markets around them.
LeapFrog receives hundreds of world-class applications. Fellows have come from top tier private equity, investment banking, consulting and legal backgrounds, have a relevant degree or advanced degree, and demonstrated experience in financial modelling, business analysis or transaction development. Past fellows have shown deep commitment to social impact, emerging markets and/or entrepreneurship. Applications for the Class of 2013 are now open.
