Tulane University Partners with Venture for America to Create Inner-City Jobs


Tulane University's Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will partner with Venture for America (VFA) to host 2020 VFA Fellows along with leaders from university entrepreneurship centers across the country during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) in March.

Venture for America, founded by former presidential candidate Andrew Yang in 2011, is a two-year fellowship program for recent graduates who want to work at a startup and create jobs in American cities.

VFA Fellows and their mentors will participate in dedicated programming designed by the Lepage Center, VFA and leaders from the New Orleans business community.

Participants will also attend the NOEW summit, a two-day conference featuring opportunities to network with thought leaders, entrepreneurs and investors from around the country.

Fellows learn important startup skills at a month-long training camp, apply for jobs within VFA's company network and work for two years as full-time, salaried employees in one of 14 cities.
