About Fuse Corps
Fuse Corps’ mission is to build a movement to solve the biggest challenges facing communities across America by enlisting the country’s most entrepreneurial leaders into public service. We create catalysts for innovation and increased effectiveness in cities and states across the US. Our approach is to provide opportunities for entrepreneurial professionals with an average of 15 years of experience to spend a year helping governors, mayors and community leaders across America drive meaningful social change. We identify concrete projects in local communities that address a national priority (such as education, economic development or health care). We then recruit and deploy highly-skilled and passionate professionals to help develop and implement innovative and lasting solutions.
Fuse Corps is a highly selective national group of entrepreneurial professionals who commit to spending one year addressing complex national issues (e.g. education, health, environment). During their year of service, each professional is paired with a visionary leader (governors, mayors and social entrepreneurs) and an influential network of decision makers. Fellows participate in the best, hands-on, public service / entrepreneurial leadership experience in the country.
As “entrepreneurs in residence”, they are put in charge of a concrete opportunity to lead meaningful social change, provided with leadership support and coaching, and connected with a national cohort. Fuse Corps alums ultimately become powerful social change agents in their communities and workplaces for years to come. Fuse Corps Fellows demonstrate how the combined ingenuity and collaboration of the public and private sectors can improve our communities.
After spending 8 or more years in the private sector, Fuse Corps fellows spend a year working in the trenches with our country’s most visionary leaders and help solve real community problems. Fuse Corps gives fellows a powerful platform to give something back to their community. They will have an unprecedented chance to expand their leadership capabilities and to network with top national and state leaders. They will learn how government works (and doesn’t) and discover new ways to address the challenges facing our country. The innovation they will help drive in their communities will demonstrate the power and potential of public and private sector collaborations.
You can help us get to the next level!
