Venture For America

About Venture For America

Venture For America is a two-year Fellowship program for early-career professionals who are interested in entrepreneurship, job creation, and careers at startups. Fellows apply for jobs within our private job portal, learn important startup skills starting at our summer Training Camp, and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 13 cities. Throughout the Fellowship and after, VFA provides regional and national programming to help Fellows build community, grow into startup leaders, and turn their business ideas into reality.

The Fellowship is open to recent college graduates who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or DACA recipients and are willing to live and work in one of our cities.
