The 8VC Fellowship is an immersive 3-month internship program that places undergraduate students into the world's most innovative startups.
The 8VC Fellowship is an enriched summer internship program designed to foster the technology leaders of tomorrow. Fellows will complete a software engineering internship at an 8VC portfolio company while attending weekly Fellowship events to meet and learn from notable entrepreneurs, executives, and investors in our network from Silicon Valley and beyond.
8VC Fellows will spend their summer working closely with world class founders and engineers on meaningful technical problems at an early stage startup. You will be given the opportunity to take ownership, contribute value, and learn first hand what it means to scale a business.
8VC’s partners firmly believe that building world-class technology companies alongside leading thinkers and operators is how young technology entrepreneurs can develop their networks, skill sets, and career the fastest. The 8VC Fellowship takes this idea as inspiration.
We are a dynamic group of entrepreneurs, engineers, financiers, and philosophers who have worked together for years. We value operating experience and action, but also new ideas and creative theories. Our unique blend of strengths and worldviews enables us to understand investment opportunities using multiple frameworks and help companies succeed in unparalleled ways.
