Empower a better future with us

Summer 2024 Fellowship Program - Applications are Open

Program description

Business Plan

Vectors Capital is looking for its next cohort of Venture Fellows to join our teams and support investments in startups solving challenges in climate change.  This program is designed to give participants investing experience from the perspective of impact and global change, familiarity with VC-level due diligence processes and an opportunity to develop skills at the vector of sustainability and finance.

Co Workers

We are looking for angel investors, professionals, accomplished students (Ph.D., MBA, computer science or law) to work under the mentorship of seasoned VCs on deal due diligence, finance, operations, and fundraising. However, you will work as a team and you have the opportunity to work across responsibilities and collaborate with each other to deliver investments. The next cohort will focus highly on climate tech. If you have a background in energy, mobility, agriculture, heavy industry, buildings or other related areas, it is a big plus.

Prepare to work as a team  - we make investment decisions together. 

The Vectors Fellowship Program is has both full-time and part-time opportunities. For students in the summer cohorts, students may work full-time during the summer months and revert to a part-time schedule with a ~10 hour/week time commitment during the academic year.

Investing only marks the beginning of a startup partnership. Making startups successful are essential.
