Apply to Venture for America

Are you happiest when you're building something? Are you looking to make an impact on emerging cities across the country? Are you ready to join an influential network of entrepreneurs and startup leaders?

Venture for America (VFA) builds economic opportunities in emerging cities by recruiting, training, and matching recent graduates with growth-stage startups and equipping them with the skills and resources to be leaders or founders themselves. As a VFA fellow, you'll learn from world-class entrepreneurs and business leaders at an intensive training camp before starting a full-time salaries position at a startup in one of 14 US cities. VFA supports Fellows with ongoing mentorship, access to a robust network of alumni and advisors, and help funding their ideas when they're ready to start businesses of their own.

VFA is looking for college seniors and recent grads who are excited by the opportunity to learn and grow with a startup. Apply here by January 28th.
