Undergraduate & MBA Venture Fellows

The Georgetown Venture Fellows Program is designed as a unique one-year apprenticeship in a venture capital or private equity firm. Georgetown students gain valuable hands-on experience in VC/PE, while firms benefit from high-quality work and the continuity of having an “intern” for longer than a few weeks.

The Venture Fellows program is run by the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative in conjunction with the McDonough School of Business and the MBA Career Center. 

The Georgetown Venture Fellows Program provides a unique opportunity and is not ideal for everyone. Full-time Georgetown undergraduate students (sophomores and juniors) and full-time first-year Georgetown MBA students are eligible to apply; international students must have completed at least one full year of academic studies as of the start of the program to be eligible, in compliance with US immigration and labor laws.

General Calendar of Application, Selection, Fellowship

The Georgetown Venture Fellows are selected in November/December and start in January. During the spring semester Fellows work approximately 10-15 hours/week (usually unpaid) for a venture firm in such tasks as due diligence, deal sourcing, and assisting portfolio companies. During the summer, Fellows work full-time as a summer intern in the firm (may be paid a market-rate wage, which varies by firm). When the fall semester starts, the Fellow and the firm have the option to continue a part-time work arrangement for the rest of the calendar year. There is no expectation or promise of full-time employment with the firm at the end of the Fellowship, though some of our Fellows have secured full-time positions in venture capital through this program.
