Venture for America


VFA is a two-year fellowship program for recent grads who want to work at a startup and create jobs in American cities. Fellows learn important startup skills at our month-long Training Camp, apply for jobs within our vetted company network, and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 14 cities. When Fellows are ready to start a company—be it two years after college or ten—VFA has the resources (like a crowdfunding competition, accelerator, and seed fund) to help make that dream a reality.

We are a community of builders with integrity. We are a team of dedicated professionals working hard to create a better future. We are a collective of supporters, advisors, and leaders who believe that entrepreneurship changes lives, strengthens communities and makes those who take the leap better versions of themselves.
