Congrats to Joleen Gurevich! a Macaulay Honors Scholar majoring in Finance on being accepted to the Venture for America Fellowship.
Venture for America recruits 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, Las Vegas, New Orleans). Modeled after Teach for America, Venture for America provides a path for entrepreneurship to college grads who want to learn how to build companies and create jobs. The goal is that a substantial proportion of VFA Fellows will become successful entrepreneurs, preferably rooted in the communities to which they are assigned. Fellows are fully employed by their host company and receive benefits through their employer.
