Sundara Fellowship 2021

Women worldwide have unique and powerful ideas on how to resolve water, sanitation, or hygiene problems, but many lack the resources to bring their solutions to life. RISE Fellowship by Sundara provides mentorship, seed funding and resources to female entrepreneurs living in low to middle-income countries. They empower impactful entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses that make a lasting impact in their communities.

This is a great opportunity for the women entrepreneurs who need some assistance for taking their business to the next level. From providing funding to getting the chance to learn from the best, this fellowship can really be a game-changer.


  • Overcome Challenges With 1:1 Mentorshi: Their team supports entrepreneurs on everything from how to develop a business plan to how to perfect a pitch. Since no two projects or businesses are alike, each of our fellows receives individualized advice. They know female entrepreneurs often struggle to access support – filling that gap is central to their mission.
  • Spark Growth With Seed Funding: Many female entrepreneurs lack access to financial resources. They provide the fellows with a portion of the initial financial support they require. This seed funding helps the entrepreneurs to develop their business plans into a well-researched, income-generating project that will contribute sustainably to their community for years to come.
  • Learn From Global Business Experts: From business consultants to PR experts and global organizations, their extensive network is full of professionals with valuable advice for new businesses in the water, sanitation, and hygiene field.
