Come celebrate the work that Venture for America is doing in Baltimore! Venture for America is a two year fellowship program that matches recent college grads with startups in cities with growing startup communities. After five weeks of training, VFA Fellows spend two years in the trenches of a startup in one of 18 U.S. cities where they learn how to contribute to a high-growth business. These Fellows deliberately seek out VFA for the opportunity to work outside of Silicon Valley and New York, where they have a real impact on the surrounding community and entrepreneurial ecosystem. Afterwards, VFA provides the mentorship, network, and resources Fellows need to become founders of their own impactful companies.
Since 2013, 86 Fellows have launched their careers as startup employees here in this great city. These Fellows have supported the work of 40 local startups and helped these companies grow and add nearly 200 new jobs to the Baltimore economy.
Whether you're a VFA supporter, aspiring Fellow, or anywhere in between, come out for an evening of connecting with likeminded individuals, and meet current VFA Fellows!
