Our Work

WHERE MERIT TRUMPS PRIVILEGE

The world’s first private network
of diverse leaders committed to
one another’s success and to a better world.

The Fortis Society nurtures a global network of talented young leaders united by their humble backgrounds and who have a strong incentive to help one another succeed. So far, we have supported gifted leaders from 35 nationalities accredited by the world’s leading universities (from Harvard to Peking University).


Each year we award the Future Global Leaders Fellowship to 20 of the world’s most exceptional first-generation college students to prepare them for their induction in the Fortis Society. This internationally competitive 3-year program grooms Fellows to become top leaders.

 

Why we do it

We believe a key predictor of great success is having a powerful network. Unfortunately, many talented leaders are born without the benefit of such a network. This constrains their prospects to reach the high level of power needed to make a meaningful global impact.
