For example, take a look at what Dr. Jordan Kassalow, the founder and CEO of VisionSpring wrote about how his amazing networks and colleagued in the social entrepreneurship field continue to inspire him even after the fellowship itself is over: "The Henry Crown Fellowship at the Aspen Institute, The Council Foreign of Relations, The Skoll Foundation Fellowship, The Draper Richards Fellowship as well as the Ashoka Fellowship have provided indispensable inspiration for me."
