BALLE announces Local Economy Fellowship

At NoVo we have partnered with BALLE to build the first and only fellowship dedicated solely to advancing the local economy movement.

Designed as the foundational heart of this emerging movement, the Fellowship is growing the effective collaboration of well-supported leaders, working strategically toward a common vision. Fellows are at the forefront of rebuilding communities from the ground up through creative economic development strategies that enhance the staying power of locally owned businesses, by applying their passion for social change to business-oriented solutions, and through sustainable innovations in manufacturing, finance and food.

BALLE Fellows participate in an intense, close-knit and rigorous 18-month leadership immersion program that connects, strengthens and publicizes them and builds their capacity for transformative change in their communities.
