What our FMS partners are saying: 

Ayla Schlosser, Founder and Executive Director of Resonate
As a busy entrepreneur, traveling between Rwanda and the US and trying to launch a business, having the time to recruit and screen candidates is a major challenge. The benefit of working with FMS is having the program vet top candidates for you. 

Zoe Schlag, Unltd USAOur experience with Cristina, our current FMS Fellow, has been incredibly positive and she has had a significant impact on our ability to find and support early-stage social entrepreneurs. We would be honored to have another fellow.

Anand Kulkarni, CEO of MobileworksWe are very happy with the FMS candidates we’ve worked with before – we hired our last Fellow into a full-time role.  I would love to have some additional Frontier Market Scouts Fellows.
