Silicon Valley Next is a collaborative approach to develop high potential leaders for nonprofits serving our local community. A select cohort of Fellows – all individuals deeply rooted in the community – receive training, coaching, peer support, and other investments to prepare them for executive leadership.

Silicon Valley Next Fellows serve in their current org chart at one or two levels below the Executive Director/CEO role. They have all been identified as individuals who could plausibly ascend to the top leadership role in an organization within the next five years.

This collaboration is led by Consulting Within Reach and funded by Heising-Simons Foundation, Knight Foundation, and Sobrato Family Foundation. Participating nonprofits include agencies widely recognized as critical to our region.

The 2020 pilot will focus on the South Bay community. Selection of Fellows will be announced in the late fall of 2019 and the program will launch in January 2020.

We are currently not soliciting applications from individuals or nonprofits interested in participating. If you are seeking more information about the program, please contact
