SG’s New Business Management Fellowship

Posted by Soil Generation on February 11, 2020

Black and Brown led businesses often face systemic barriers to long term organizational sustainability. Soil Generation’s MELANATED BUSINESS MANAGEMENT (MBM) FELLOWSHIP seeks to address this by offering business management training to five fellows of color in financial management, human resources, fundraising and more. In this program, fellows will learn the tangible skills needed to collectively work on our Admin Portal.

The Admin Portal is our centralized business administrative hub that will provide technical support to food and land related businesses in our network.


MLM fellows will engage in an 18 month, 15 hours/week, professional development training that will enable them to collectively manage the administrative responsibilities of organizations within Soil Generation’s network. Fellows will learn various business management skills and additional expertise around land and food sovereignty and cooperative economics  to help ensure the sustainability of our network.
