Do You Like to Build…a Start-Up? Venture for America is Looking for You

VFA is a two-year fellowship program for recent undergrads who want to work at a startup and create jobs in American cities. Fellows learn important startup skills at their five-week Training Camp, apply for jobs within their vetted company network, and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 18 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.

The next deadline to apply to VFA’s Class of 2018 is coming up on Monday, October 2nd at 11:59pm EST. Please go to Handshake to apply here
