Alibaba Business School Online eFounders Scholarships

      Date : July 28, 2021

      The eFounders Fellowship Program provides direct exposure to e-commerce and digital innovations, access to business leaders from Alibaba and China, as well as an opportunity to connect with top like-minded entrepreneurs in your region. The fraternity is a community of passionate and successful “Champions of the New Economy” who seek to inspire and create a more inclusive development model for all.

      As a former special adviser to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Jack Ma, executive chairman of  Alibaba Group , acknowledged that by applying the ideas of China’s most innovative companies to their own companies, fellows will be equipped to make changes in their home country. With this opportunity in mind, the eFounders scholarship was established in 2017 to find and empower local entrepreneurs who can benefit from Alibaba’s experience in China.

      Program organizers: informs you that The eFounders scholarship program is jointly organized by Alibaba Business School and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development ( UNCTAD ), which are implementing the  2030 Sustainable Development Goals .
