When you work at a startup, you need to be ready to adapt and take on any challenge thrown your way (or even challenge yourself when no one is telling you what to do). Before you start your job, you’ll spend five weeks at Brown University working alongside other VFA'ers to make sure you have the basic skills and startup knowledge to hit the ground running. Through a combination of group challenges, visits from experienced entrepreneurs, and skills sessions from expert trainers like IDEO and McKinsey, we’ll make sure you’re READY. TO. GO. Oh, and spending five weeks with your new best friends is pretty fun too.
