Tribe 12 Fellowship

The Tribe 12 Fellowship is a six month accelerator program, designed to run concurrently with school or work obligations, for young professionals with an idea or existing venture which in some way leverage, engage or affect the Jewish community.

The ventures we've helped launch range from for-profit to non-profit; from seed stage startups to established businesses; and from within the Jewish community to well outside it. 

To date, we have graduated three Fellowship classes of Philadelphia's brightest young professionals and students, ages 22-40.  

The Tribe 12 Fellowship was founded in 2010 in partnership with PresenTense, an international organization for social entrepreneurs, and thanks in part to generous support from the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, the Fellowship is free for participants. Since its inception, the Tribe 12 Fellowship has graduated 20 fellows, whose ventures encompass spheres as diverse as childhood literacy, cleantech development and interfaith relations.


PresenTense PHL is a network for entrepreneurially minded, socially conscious young professionals.  The Tribe 12 Fellowship provides social innovators with the tools and connections to create and improve ventures that will leverage the Jewish community for the benefit of all communities.
