Venture for America is a fellowship program for enterprising recent college graduates to launch their careers as entrepreneurs and revitalize American cities. After five weeks of training, VFA Fellows spend two years in the trenches of a startup in an emerging U.S. city where they learn how to contribute to a high-growth business.
Afterwards, VFA provides the mentorship, network, and resources Fellows need to become entrepreneurs.
Their goal is to fuel job growth in cities throughout the U.S. while empowering the best and brightest to create value in their communities. They aim to produce effective and high-character builders who will found and lead quality organizations throughout their careers.
