Full Description
Venture for America is a 2-year fellowship program that sends young, talented graduates to work for start-ups in emerging cities (i.e., Cincinnati, Detroit, New Orleans, Providence, Las Vegas), with the goal of mobilizing them as entrepreneurs moving forward.

Its mission is threefold:
To revitalize American cities and communities through entrepreneurship.
To enable our best and brightest to create new opportunities for themselves and others.
To restore the culture of achievement to include value-creation, risk and reward, and the common good.

VFA recruits the best and brightest recent college graduates, provides them with training and mentorship, and places them at partner start-ups to help grow those organizations. This is an opportunity for students who want to learn how to build companies.

The 2013 Venture for America Fellowship consists of the following components:
- Training - a 5-week crash course in start-up readiness, held at Brown University in Summer 2013
- Company Placement - 2 years of work at a start-up or early stage company
- Programming and Capstone - Regular assignments, readings and meetings, including a $100k prize at the conclusion of the program
