College Fellowship

The premiere fellowship program for college LGBTQ students pursuing a career in the venture capital industry.

The LGBT+ VC Fellowship is a three-month program for college students interested in learning more about the venture capital industry. Students have the opportunity to network with investors and entrepreneurs, learn the fundamentals of venture capital, and conduct research on the innovation economy. Their projects support queer venture capital™, members of the LGBTQ venture capital ecosystem, and the broader private market and investment landscape.
