Dive into Startups and VC as Our Next Venture Fellow

Our Venture Fellow program turns two years old this summer and each of our Fellows have left their mark on our organization during their tenure. It's proven to be a great avenue for recent graduates of undergraduate programs to break into the world of venture capital and startups in a "learn by doing" environment. Our Venture Fellows are a key member of our team and get exposure to all aspects of running a venture firm: sourcing, diligence, post-investment support, and investor relations.

We value diversity and encourage candidates from all backgrounds and walks of life to apply!
