Venture for America Fellowship

Venture for America is a fellowship program for recent grads who want to learn how to build a business while making an impact. VFA Fellows get training and join a startup in an emerging US city, where they learn hands-on what it takes to build a company and become a successful entrepreneur.

After being selected, and trained for 5 weeks, fellows hit the ground running and spend two years building a business while getting the experience they need to one day start a venture of their own.
