CMC alumna, Amy Nelson '05, is the CEO of Venture for America, VFA is a two-year fellowship program for recent grads who want to work at a startup and create jobs in American cities. Fellows learn important startup skills at our month-long Training Camp, apply for jobs within our vetted company network, and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 14 cities. When Fellows are ready to start a company—be it two years after college or ten—VFA has the resources (like a crowdfunding competition, accelerator, and seed fund) to help make that dream a reality.
We are a community of builders with integrity. We are a team of dedicated professionals working hard to create a better future. We are a collective of supporters, advisors, and leaders who believe that entrepreneurship changes lives, strengthens communities and makes those who take the leap better versions of themselves.
Amy will be leading a discussion on making a difference in underrepresented communities. Many 5C alumni join VFA after graduation. This is a great time to network with a CMC alumna, CEO and check out the opportunities that VFA has to offer!
