The Dual Investment Program invests in visionary leaders and their groundbreaking ideas.
The Dual Investment Program, started by Joshua Venture Group (JVG), launched its first cohort of fellows in 2001. Inspired by efforts outside the Jewish world to cultivate a culture of entrepreneurship to spark lasting social change, JVG began testing a model designed to empower young leaders with the funding, skills, and connections needed to build influential projects that would reinvigorate Jewish communities. Previous fellows founded organizations such as Matan, Sharsheret, BimBam, the Kavana Cooperative, and Keshet –– game-changing organizations that have evolved from marginal upstarts into thriving organizations embedded into the fabric of Jewish life.
Now part of the UpStart family, the Dual Investment Program serves as an intensive platform tailored to the needs of a small cohort of fellows.
The Dual Investment Program is not currently accepting applications. However, if this Fellowship sounded right for you, we recommend that you learn more about the UpStart Accelerator here.
