We're excited to again be offering two full scholarships for up-and-coming investors who have been traditionally underrepresented in the venture capital space, especially women and/or ethnic minorities, and want to make a big impact in our industry.
Are you passionate about working with diverse founders? Have you organized meetups for the startup community in different ecosystems? Started a VC newsletter or podcast? If so, apply today and tell us about it!
We are looking to identify individuals who will use the knowledge learned in the program to build diverse innovation ecosystems in and around their communities.
