Be Our Next Venture Fellow

Join us in January to learn how venture capital and startups work

By: Santosh Sankar

Here at Dynamo, we’re as busy as we’ve ever been and are excited to announce the search for our next Venture Fellow. We understand that getting exposure to venture capital is highly sought after but difficult to practically get. We created the six-month Venture Fellow program to offer an opportunity to develop hands-on experience where one can learn how venture capital and startups work in an apprenticeship model. The individual will join a nimble team of operators and investors and have a rare opportunity to learn the inner workings of a venture fund. At the conclusion of the program, we will work with the Fellow to help them identify and achieve the next step in their career.

Think it’s too good to be true? Ask our current Fellow Matt McHugh who will provide training and support to the incoming candidate and transition into his next role.

We’re excited to meet candidates and encourage all interested parties to apply!
