Jason Bourne

The enFocus Fellowship enabled me to round out my experience as an engineer-in-training by gaining project management and stakeholder management skills, which I had not been able to gain in my studies. Through my projects with local government, I met passionate community stakeholders in the South Bend-Elkhart region, and I strengthened my ability to quickly learn and synthesize new information.

I have never worked at a place where I've been so challenged, supported, and encouraged to pursue my crazy ideas. I know from the little experience I have that it's a special thing when you can feel comfortable enough to go to one of your colleagues and propose ideas that have never been tried before without fear of humiliation. All of you gave me that freedom, and I hope I've given the same to you.

How do Fellows spend their time?

Sponsor Projects

The innovation project range from implementing new technologies to studying the market feasibility of a new business venture. After the project is complete, employers often look to retain Fellows as full-time employees to continue the cycle of innovation and impact.

30%
Entrepreneurship / Community

We strive to bring an entrpreneurship focus to communities, which is why we give Fellows the freedom to pursue their own projects, whether it be launching a startup or redefining the way a nonprofit serves our community.
