Join Dynamo Ventures' Fellowship Program

A six-month, paid opportunity in VC and startups

Join Dynamo Ventures' Fellowship Program

We're looking for our next Venture Fellows who will join us starting January 2022 for a six month period. Our Venture Fellowship is geared towards those who are no more than a year out of an undergraduate program and looking 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.

“Being a Venture Fellow at Dynamo gives you the opportunity to think critically about large issues, while meeting amazing founders taking on these enormous tasks”
- Skyler Loogman, Current Fellow, Dynamo Ventures

 Our Venture Fellows have a rich experience and have gone on to roles in our portfolio, founding business, joining other VCs, and even running mainstream podcasts!

“As a Venture Fellow, I was provided with hands-on venture capital experience and mentorship that spanned much further than my time at Dynamo. The experience helped me understand the startup landscape at a deeper level, allowing me to find my place in the community now running social media for Jason Calacanis’ This Week in Startups.” 
- Rachel Braun, This Week in Startups 

We value diversity and encourage candidates from all backgrounds and fields of study.
