There’s no one thing that makes a great Fellow, but if you’re excited to dive headfirst into a startup, work hard, and apprentice yourself to a founder, this could be for you.
Startup experience, training, mentorship, friends, and cofounders. Once you join us, we'll give you what you need to make the most of your two years with us (and your career)....
We may be a two-year program, but it doesn’t stop there. Starting your own company? Need work advice? Alumni get access to resources and stay plugged into our network for life.
Once you join VFA, we’ll help you find a fit with one of our 200+ partner companies that are changing the economies of cities across the country. Check out a few of them here, or meet them all below. Which team would you want to join?
VFA is a nonprofit program that places our best and brightest at startups in emerging cities, helping build businesses, create jobs, and make an impact.
VFA trains top college grads…
And sends them to startups.
They spend two years building those companies…
… and launching their careers as entrepreneurs.
Each year, we recruit and train a new group of recent grads to join startups in emerging cities across the country. After being selected, and trained for 5 weeks, you’ll hit the ground running and spend two years building a business while getting the experience you need to one day start a venture of your own.
Find your fit with a partner company and work with experienced entrepreneurs.Read more
