Description

VFA Logo

Venture for America will recruit the best and brightest college grads to work for two years at emerging start-ups and early-stage companies in lower-cost cities (e.g., Detroit, Providence, New Orleans). Modeled after Teach for America, Venture for America will provide a path for entrepreneurship to college grads who want to learn how to build companies and create jobs.

Goals:

  • Drive talent to create jobs and spur enterprise in lower-cost cities.
  • Provide a path for entrepreneurship for young, talented college graduates.
  • Encourage entrepreneurship in parts of the United States that struggle to attract young college graduates.

The goal is that a substantial proportion of the VFA Fellows will become successful entrepreneurs, preferably rooted in the communities to which they're assigned. Venture for America's purpose is job generation - our goal is to generate 100,000 U.S. jobs by 2025.
