Lightspeed Venture Partners Summer Fellowships

Earn up to $65k this summer to build your start up at Lightspeed!

Are you an aspiring entrepreneur looking for more than an internship this summer? How about getting quality time with some of the investors behind companies like Snapchat, Nest, Whisper, TaskRabbit and GrubHub? Follow in the footsteps of the founders of Crittercism, Pinterest, Pulse, Sourcegraph and Lark. Lightspeed Venture Partners is now accepting applications for its 2016 Summer Fellowship Program.

What exactly is Lightspeed’s Fellowship Program? Think of it like a scholarship - we provide resources, mentorship and guidance so you can spend your summer devoted to entrepreneurship and building your idea into a company. Now in its 10th year, and with over 225 alumni, the program is designed to enable young, engineering-minded entrepreneurs to work fulltime with the guidance of seasoned venture capitalists and other successful founders on building all aspects of a business from the ground up.
Each team will receive $5,000 and $15,000 per team member, mentoring from Lightspeed’s partners, office space in Menlo Park, CA and additional resources to help you make connections and get started. Fellows are under NO OBLIGATION to Lightspeed and we receive NO EQUITY as part of the program.

Applications for Round 1 are due January 15, 2016. For more info about the program, past participants and the application, check out: http://bit.ly/1yAzrRK
