Information Session: Venture for America
Hear from Sam Rispaud '15 about his experiences as a Venture for America fellow in Baltimore. Sam was a Neuroscience major at Wesleyan and is now working for a healthcare startup in Baltimore. Venture for America, with a focus on placing students at early stage companies, accepts students of all majors ranging from Economics to Chemistry. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Sam firstname.lastname@example.org.
Venture for America is a career accelerator for recent grads who want to learn how to build a business while making an impact. VFA Fellows get training and join a startup in an emerging US city, where they live and work for two years at one of our hundreds of partner companies. They learn hands-on what it takes to build a company, while getting the mentorship, network, and ongoing support to prepare themselves to become successful entrepreneurs. Our goal is to spark job growth in cities that need it by sending our top-talent to help grow the businesses that will make it happen.
Our final application deadline is approaching fast!
