What To Expect

Fellows formulate 2-3 goals that they hope to accomplish by the end of the program.

The vertical co-leads meet frequently with the fellows to ensure they have the resources and support needed to accomplish their goals.

Fellows receive mentorship with vertical co-leads who will guide them through the program.

Fellows will work on various projects with the co-leads that support that particular vertical. Projects could include: meeting additional vertical members to learn about a particular topic and publish a blog post with their commentary and your industry research, organizing a state-of-the-industry call with a subject matter expert and vertical members, coordinating a fireside chat or speaker panel with partners at various VC firms.

This fellowship is ideal for students who have a serious interest in pursuing a venture capital career.

As such, fellows are expected to dedicate at least 5 hours/week during the school year towards participating in the programming. During the summer, fellows may dedicate less time depending on their other commitments.

The Program Includes

Quarterly fireside chats with successful VCs and entrepreneurs

Networking with other fellows

Projects with EVCA industry vertical co-leads

1:1 mentorship with EVCA members

Resume included in an "fellows resume book" shared with the EVCA community

Recurring small discussion groups to discuss case studies & relevant industry news
