In America, the impact of entrepreneurship is powerful. Entrepreneurship drives innovation, economic growth, social mobility and more, but it’s not accessible to all. Venture For America seeks to change that through our 2 year Fellowship.

The Venture For America Fellowship is mobilizing the next generation of entrepreneurs and equipping them with experience, training, and community to become startup leaders and founders. During the two-year Fellowship, our Fellows are salaried, full-time employees at startups or high-growth companies in one of our 13 cities, working in a range of roles and industries from project management, ops, sales, VC, UX, and more, and engaging in entrepreneurial programming.

During this event, you’ll hear from Clara Gustafson, who is a 2013 Baltimore Alum about her experience as a VFA Fellow, and her experience working at ZeroFox where she was in the first 10 employees and worked as a Business Development Associate and now – 10 years later – is the Chief Experience Officer enabling hundreds of employees globally. Having developed many roles for the first time from sales development rep to marketing manager and Chief of Staff, Clara can share what it’s like to work in a venture-backed growth tech startup and the entrepreneurial mindsets and skills needed.

Through VFA, Fellows find lifelong friends, an entrepreneurial community, and a network of individuals to help take their career and ambitions to the next level. In addition to hearing from Clara, our recruitment team will walk you through how Fellows find their job, common roles and industries available to Fellows, plus the programming, community, and resources. We’ll close out with a Q&A with Clara, our recruiters and how to apply for our next deadline on Jan. 29

To apply to Venture For America’s 2024 Fellowship class you must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or DACA recipient, early in your career (completed your undergraduate degree since 2021)
