What is Venture For America?

VFA is a two-year fellowship program for recent grads who want to work at a startup and create jobs in American cities. Fellows learn important startup skills at our monthlong Training Camp, apply for jobs within our vetted company network, and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 14 cities. When Fellows are ready to start a company—be it two years after college or ten—VFA has the resources (like a crowdfunding competition, accelerator, and seed fund) to help make that dream a reality.

How does VFA work?

VFA was the most formative 2 years of my life. The other Fellows and the team are family. These are people I want to be around forever. If you're thinking of applying for VFA, you should do it. It's freaking amazing. It's not always going to be easy, but I can guarantee you it will be life changing.

– Sean Wen '13, Co-Founder of PINCH Boil House & Bia Bar
