As part of LGT Venture Philanthropy's support to scale proven local solutions, the ICats Program was established to provide additional know-how to social organizations. The program connects social organizations in need of professional know-how, and experts with the desire to apply their knowledge in a meaningful way, thus acting as “Impact Catalysts”. This is how the name ICats came about. Global corporations can integrate the ICats Program into their leadership development programs to promote responsible leadership through first hand experience.
Applications for the ICats Fellowship Program 2015 are closed now. If you are interested to join the program in the future, please register now to become a member of the ICats talent pool.
"When the fellowship was over, we requested Sheela to stay on in the team and
help us develop a new aspect of the program - this is testimony to how much
we valued her input and how well she had integrated into the team."
Suparna Gupta, Founder Aangan Trust
"2013 has been the culmination of different kinds of experience for me. Working in India,
