Are You an ESE Leader?

Let’s Connect.

We know running a social enterprise is both rewarding and tough. That’s why we’ve spent the last 25+ years working alongside entrepreneurs, like you, who show the world what happens when you see people for the talent they hold, not the barriers they face. Our job is to meet enterprises at key inflection points to help them grow sustainably. Let’s see if we’re a fit for you. Complete our interest form below.

A relationship with REDF begins with the Accelerator or through a loan with our Impact Investing Fund. You can find more information about those programs below including eligibility criteria and
program benefits.


A five-month supportive, cohort-based, curated learning experience for leaders of early-stage enterprises to springboard growth.

Described as a “mini-MBA,” this unique program includes 100+ hours of applied learning on topics including business model, program design, financial management, and leadership development.

Applications for our 2025 cohorts are reviewed on a rolling basis and will open later this year!
