Through Venture for America, a highly competitive program launched in 2011, some of the nation’s best and the brightest grads have the chance to experience entrepreneurship while making an impact on a young company’s growth.
Cleveland was added to the list of Venture for America cities this year. There are eight fellows in town for the next two years, and several JumpStart client companies have added this enthusiastic young talent to their ranks. “Our goal is to continue to funnel smart, talented builders to startups and high growth companies across the country and in communities like Cleveland, where they can contribute and add value to the growth of the business and help create jobs,” says Venture for America’s COO, Eileen Lee.
Listen to Lee, Paragon Robotics CEO Julian Lamb and Cleveland Fellow Mehves Tangun discuss the merits of the program.
