Meet our Founder
“I started Venture for America in 2011 with a pretty straightforward idea - to channel talented college grads to early-stage companies in Detroit, New Orleans, Providence and other U.S. cities to train as entrepreneurs. This would help the companies succeed and create jobs in these communities. It would also prepare our young people to go on to become the builders and entrepreneurs our country needs.”– Andrew Yang, Venture for America Founder
