To prepare Fellows optimally for their assignments, they are invited to a compulsory 5-day kick-off workshop in Switzerland.
During the kick-off workshop, Fellows meet team members of LGT Venture Philanthropy, their peers as well as Fellowship Alumni from all around the world. They learn about LGT Venture Philanthropy’s activities and from previous Fellowship experiences. Most importantly, they build strong ties with other Fellows that serve as a support network throughout their Fellowships.
To ensure direct knowledge transfer, we usually invite a former Fellow and an LGT Venture Philanthropy Investment Manager to participate in the workshop in addition to the Fellowship Team.
