Camelback Social Venture Fellowship Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Oakland, USA

Camelback Venture’s Fellows Program offers seed-funding and support to new leaders with promising ideas, and empowers them to enact change within their communities. This year we anticipate that about 10% of applicants will ultimately be awarded a Fellowship.

During the seven-month program, Fellows receive a $5,000 matching grant and the opportunity for up to $40,000 in additional investment (capital). Fellows receive 1:1 strategy coaching and participate in leadership development sessions developed in partnership with City Year (coaching). Fellows also engage in a summit series and other network opportunities to deepen their relationships with tech talent, investors and other partners (connections).

We believe that social ventures founded by local entrepreneurs based in their community are more likely to create lasting impact within their community. Therefore, we prioritize local entrepreneurs, or individuals who are focused on creating educational and economic opportunities within their own cities, neighborhoods, schools and communities. Because our target communities are primarily communities of color, many of our ventures are founded by entrepreneurs of color.
