Community Growth Manager, Venture for America


Venture for America is a fellowship program for recent college graduates to launch their careers as entrepreneurs. The Fellows spend two years in the trenches of a startup in an emerging city, where they learn how to build a business while making an impact. VFA trains Fellows to become highly productive startup employees who can help their companies grow, then provides the mentorship, network, and resources they need to become successful entrepreneurs.

The goal is to fuel job growth in cities that need it while empowering our best and brightest to help startups grow and create value in their communities. Venture for America aims to produce effective and high-character leaders who view community impact and value creation as fundamental to personal success throughout their careers.
