BALLE Local Economy Fellowship: Call for Applicants

“We need to fundamentally re-think our economic system to create real prosperity. We believe that an economic and cultural transformation of this magnitude will require supporting the emerging innovators. That is why our partnership with BALLE to identify, connect, nourish and illuminate today’s top local economy leaders is a key part of our strategy.” – Jennifer Buffet, NoVo Foundation

The Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE) is looking for passionate local innovators to join the 2013-2014 Local Economy Fellowship. These 16 individuals will join other national leaders, community conveners, and new economy catalysts, who are not only rethinking but reshaping how our local communities grow and thrive from the ground up.

Are you passionate about connecting the dots of supply and demand through local manufacturing, finance, or food systems? Are you working to spur economic development and support sustainable business values at the same time?  Do you see strong, local, independent business as a force for change and a way to revive entire communities?  Then we want to meet you.

Connect with your peers. Share your innovations. Sharpen your impact.

Applications are due October 1st,, 2012.
