Searching for Our Next Venture Fellow

An six-month program for college graduates to learn about startups and venture capital

Searching for Our Next Venture Fellow

We understand that the current environment might be daunting for those graduating this summer and looking for their first career opportunity. Fear not, our Venture Fellow program continues to be an important part of our operations and accepting applications for a July start date (finishing in December).

The third Venture Fellow will have the benefit of a rebooted training program and get handoff from both Matt and Dalton. As the program progresses, the Dynamo team will work with the Fellow to provide guidance and introductions for the next step of their career whether it's a role in startups, venture capital, or further studies.

Given the COVID-19 crisis, we will begin the program remotely subject to clarity from governmental and health authorities regarding a return to the office in Chattanooga, TN.
